One of the resounding battle cries heard throughout the pandemic is “We are all in this together”. While this is comforting to many people and politically attractive as a concept, it has been very clear from the outset that certain demographics have suffered disproportionately from the outset of Covid-19. The largest demographic to be hit hard is women, whether working on the front lines in multiple industries or seeing their workplaces close indefinitely with little hope of a comeback. The pandemic is also exacerbating challenges associated with childcare, mental health, and partner violence, with these challenges affecting women in countries around the world.
On July 29th, join five Canadian women who have thought a lot about these issues and what they mean to our country, our society and to women in particular. What are the real challenges going forward? What about marginalized women and those struggling with the impact of poverty, racism, substance abuse, and/or dysfunctional/toxic relationships? How will this pandemic impact Canadian women going forward?
This event offers a unique opportunity for Canadians to dive deeper into one of the most important issues of 2020 and how it is impacting Canada and the women who live here.
