Autumn/Winter Webinar Series: Inequalities and Covid-19 – Turning Back the Clock? Women’s (un)paid work in 2020

Event Date: Monday 14th December 2020

The UK Women’s Budget Group are hosting a series of lunchtime webinars exploring the disproportionate impact of Covid-19 on different groups of women in the UK. The pandemic has exposed and exacerbated inequalities of gender, race and ethnicity, age, disability and income. These discussions bring together policy expertise and lived experience to ask what has been the impact and what policies do we need now to improve the lives of marginalised women?
