Given the disproportionate impact of the pandemic on women globally, the Women’s Policy Group have prepared a COVID-19 Feminist Recovery Plan for Northern Ireland. This plan sets out WPG recommendations for recovering from COVID-19, as elected representatives and decision-makers must take into consideration the institutionalised inequalities that exist, and co-develop recovery planning with the communities affected. These recommendations will cover economic justice, health, social justice, equality, the implications of Brexit and examples of international best practice.
The WPG will be hosting a formal launch online of the WPG Feminist Recovery Plan on Wednesday 29th July at 2pm. A range of women from marginalised communities in NI will be speaking at this event on their experiences of COVID-19, alongside an overview of some of the recommendations. For more details, and to book your place at this event, please contact Rachel Powell, Women’s Sector Lobbyist, at email@example.com.
