Isolate don’t Abandon- Helping Women Cope with the COVID-19 crisis

Update: 17-April-2020

The impact of the COVID-19 crisis and the efforts to contain the spread of the infection, is being felt differentially by vulnerable communities across India. The crisis has exposed the poor and marginalised to deprivations in their day-to-day lives, and across all communities women and girls are bearing the major brunt. There is evidence emerging that the care duties of women and girls have increased, and that they continue to face discrimination, increased burden of care work and at in increased risk of physical and mental abuse.
