Gender Equal Cities - 21.04.2020

COVID-19's impact on gender inequalities in our cities
The COVID-19 crisis risks worsening our societies’ already existing gender inequalities. In this analysis by CEMR and Urbact, we provide a detailed initial overview of the ways COVID-19’s impact has differed for men and women.

Indeed, while men are more likely to die of coronavirus, women are more likely to be affected in other significant ways. For example, there have already been reports of increases in domestic abuse as a result of prolonged confinement.

Women are more likely to be involved in health and care work carrying a higher risk of exposure. Socio-economically, women are more likely to be in precarious employment and to face increased unpaid care work at home due to the closure of nurseries and schools.

The analysis also provides examples of different cities’ measures to mitigate and address COVID-19’s impact on gender inequality and of further actions which could be taken.
