We surveyed people on whether or not their country’s public policy and financial responses to COVID-19 applied a gender perspective. We would like to say a big thank you to those of you who took time to complete it.
We were delighted to receive 137 responses from self- selected individuals from 24 countries, including Canada in the Global North to Kenya in the Global South.
In response to our first question as to whether individuals thought that their country’s economic and financial response to COVID-19 took account of gender
74 (54%) of individuals said ‘no’
42 (31%) of individuals said ‘yes’ and
21 (15%) ‘didn’t know’.
These findings are based on individual’s perceptions of what actions governments have taken in relation to integrating a gender perspective into COVID-19 policy and financial responses. Watch this space for further analysis of the survey findings.
