This lecture takes a look at the consequences of COVID-19 from a feminist economics perspective. Professor Kabeer analyses a range of different impacts associated with COVID-19 and explores the kinds of policies that such a feminist economics lens would suggest for a more resilient and equitable future.


Comment from our editors:

This is a great contribution to get a better understanding of the gendered impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the public responses to it. Prof. Kabeer gives interesting insights on the situations within families, domestic work, and also violence in the private sphere.
