ABSTRACT

Gendered Dimensions of Social Protection in the COVID-19 Context   [open pdf - 251KB]

From the Document: "In this policy brief, we summarize the findings of a CGD [Center for Global Development] working paper, 'The Gendered Dimensions of Social Protection in the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] Context'. We explore the role of social protection, with an emphasis on social assistance policies and programs, in addressing increasing poverty, food insecurity, unpaid care work, and gender-based violence-- all exacerbated by the onset of the crisis and associated containment measures. We document these trends and how they disproportionately impact women and girls, as well as the extent to which governments and donors are integrating a gender lens into their social protection efforts and make recommendations to ensure that future efforts effectively reach and benefit women and girls."
