An online discussion on the ‘Protection of women’s and children’s rights in COVID-19: Responses from South Asian Countries’

Across the world, people have witnessed a spike in cases of domestic violence and how gendered norms of unpaid care work have been reinforced in the face of lockdowns–South Asia is no exception.

What challenges and risks do women and children face in South Asian countries? What measures should these countries take to protect the rights of women and children? And what role could social movements and civil society play, in this critical time, to protect the rights of vulnerable groups?

Join ‘Protection of women’s and children’s rights in COVID-19 – Responses from South Asian countries’ to discuss the rights of South Asian women and children in the face of the pandemic.

This webinar is the second of a six-part webinar series on the ‘State of Human Rights in the Time of COVID-19 Pandemic in South Asia’, organised by FORUM-ASIA and the South Asia Alliance for Poverty Eradication (SAAPE).
