UN Women is a voice for all women during this crisis, including health care workers, care providers, refugees, and the displaced.

THE IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON WOMEN AND GIRLS

Women are 70% of health and social workers globally.
 
Women are more likely to lose an income.
 
Women who are displaced, refugees or migrant workers are particularly vulnerable in a pandemic.
 
In quarantine, domestic violence and sexual exploitation have risen. Access to justice is disrupted. 
 
Women do 3x the unpaid care work compared to men.
 
Women’s health and education must not be put on hold.
 

 
 
If you are in a position to help another -- GIVE NOW when it matters most. Any amount will help women around the globe. 
 
UN WOMEN: NOW MORE THAN EVER.
