The COVID-19 pandemic and economic harms caused by it have had particularly disparate impacts on women, racialized and marginalized communities, and the Global South. Moreover, conversations around the crisis highlighted a topic that is key to feminist studies: care work.

 

This event, kicking off IAFFE's second series on the subject, this time focusing on Recovery and Transformation, took place on Oct 28, 2020 and features Lyn Ossome from Makerere Institute of Social Research, Marcella Corsi from Sapienza University at Rome, and Amanda Shaw, member of the Hawai’i Feminist COVID-19 response team of the Hawai'i State Commission on the Status of Women. While the crisis continues, we are beginning to look into the future toward potential opportunities to rebuild our economy and world with insights from feminist economics that centers the well-being of children, women, and men in local, national, and transnational communities. The speakers will highlight how feminist economic principles can be made central to proposals for recovery and rebuilding efforts around the globe.
