#COVID19 revealed underlying gender inequalities across income, health, and security that have been in the system for a long time – the pandemic just shined a spotlight on them. @abhatiaunwomen discusses the gendered impact of the pandemic #WGHSecuritySummit #COVID5050 @womeninGH

Gender equality means having access to education, a voice, a vote, a seat at the table, and equal opportunities. It also means having laws and leaders that support gender equality, says @mvankerkhove, COVID-19 Technical Lead at @WHO. #COVID5050 #WGHSecuritySummit #UNGA
