From the Document: "The COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic has demonstrated the measures governments are willing to take to safeguard the security of their citizens. Actions previously considered unthinkable: shuttering restaurants and places of social gathering, closing borders, and shelter-in-place orders, have been implemented in order to save lives and limit the spread of the disease. But whose security is actually being safeguarded? Whose needs and interests are being heard and prioritized? Whose are being overlooked? And what does this mean for the enduring security of states? To answer these questions, one must consider security through a gender lens."
