This parallel event hosted by Asia Pacific Women’s Watch focuses on the continuing impact on women in a post Covid19 world and, the economic downturn evident in many of the countries in the region. The panel, comprising representatives from the Asia Pacific region, will address issues of economic security of women in a context where households are sliding into poverty across socio-economic divides with women’s unpaid care work intensifying, leaving them and their families vulnerable to negative health outcome. It is now imperative that national as well as regional financial institutions reprioritize investment in sectors (labour, health education) that will strengthen avenues forgender equality. Women are pushing back on patriarchal social norms in collective efforts to highlight alternate strategies that can respond to these critical issues.
