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 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!
