On the 8th of March we continue advocating for full realization of women’s rights and their comprehensive and effective inclusion in decision making structures for crises response!
The CRPM study: “Dealing with Covid-19: how does public spending affect gender equality” showed that:
📌 there were almost no consultations with women’s organizations during the preparation of Covid-19 response measures (82% of CSOs working women’s or gender equality issues believe that women were not consulted at all or that such consultations were insignificant)
📌 women have rarely been members of crisis taskforces and consulted in the preparation of measures, not even the Equal Opportunities Coordinator in the Ministries and local governments systematically involved in crises response policy making
CRPM recommends:
👉 to start with development of a new or make a complete overhaul of the legal framework applicable to the state of emergency and
👉 include more women in the decision-making processes at every level in order to ensure that gender equality concerns are addressed
