Summary of the e-Discussion on Women’s Leadership in the COVID-19 Response

This e-Discussion raised awareness about the lack of women’s leadership and representation in COVID-19 relief and recovery decision-making and on the importance of incorporating gender-sensitive responses during and after the crisis. Women in politics, civil society activists, practitioners and researchers joined this e-Discussion from 15 April to 8 May 2020. Eleven contributions from the Americas, Asia, Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa were received.

Along with our partners, we would like to extend our thanks to all followers who took the time to answer the questions of this e-Discussion and share experiences, practices, and recommendations.
