Considering the entire economic picture?

Prospects for gender equality in the global economy and the world of work in the post-coronavirus era

After over 2 years of the pandemic, COVID-19 continues to pose immense challenges to our global health systems, economy and solidarity. COVID-19 has turned the clock back by years for many positive trends, in particular in the realm of gender justice.

In its new blog, “Considering the entire economic picture?”, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) seeks to offer a space in which to examine the impact of the current coronavirus situation on women’s economic circumstance.

This blog is being developed in close cooperation with the Deutscher Frauenrat (National Council of German Women’s Organisations), which the German government has tasked with implementing the Women7 process in the context of Germany’s G7 Presidency in 2022.

The blog posts are intended to contribute to the Women7 process in a progressive, critical and constructive spirit through the global FES network, concentrating especially on the key topics “Women’s Economic Empowerment” and “A gender equal COVID recovery.
