UN Women, IDLO, UNDP, UNODC, World Bank and The Pathfinders : 2020
There is now major concern that COVID-19 and its impact will push back fragile progress on gender equality, including in relation to reversing discriminatory laws, the enactment of new laws, the implementation of existing legislation, and broader progress needed to achieving justice for all.This rapid assessment examines how the impacts of COVID-19 are threatening women’s ability to access justice. It reflects challenges faced by women and girls of diverse backgrounds and socio-economic groups, including those experiencing overlapping disadvantages for example, women on the front line and those facing amplified challenges in humanitarian settings.
