Leave No Woman Behind, Official Side Event at the HLPF 2021 Monday July 5th, 2021
The side event will discuss the impact of the pandemic on the groups of women with multiple discrimination like the women belonging from the indigenous communities, DWD (Discrimination based on work and descent) communities, women with disabilities, elderly women, women refugees, and the new widows. It will highlight the intersectionality of gender-identity with community identities and deliberate the ways to building forward better. The recommendations will dwell on inclusive social protection floors and sustainable measures to address the violence on women during and beyond the pandemic through economic and political empowerment.
GCAP will release its “Global Study on Multiple Discrimination of Women During Pandemic” during the event.
