How can we ensure that the COVID-19 crisis provides the wake-up call needed to accelerate and secure lasting gender equality?

Women have been at the forefront of the pandemic, as healthcare workers, teachers, caregivers, working parents juggling new responsibilities. As countries begin to gradually move to a post-pandemic world it is key that plans for the economic and social recovery from COVID-19 include more women both in terms of representation, but also in terms of taking a gender-perspective in all policy measures for the recovery.

As part of an OECD Forum series, our virtual event Building a gender-equal recovery took place on 28 April 2021. This event has finished and registration is now closed—but don't worry, you can still watch the replay!
