Women have been frontlined and sidelined by the pandemic – in their roles as primary caregivers and care workers and the majority of workers in sectors hardest hit by ongoing economic shutdowns. The celebration of International Women’s Day affords an opportunity to take stock of the fallout of the pandemic and its impacts on marginalized communities. The federal government has promised an Action Plan for Women in the Economy. Will it deliver?
Join the CCPA’s Katherine Scott and Anjum Sultana from YWCA Canada for a discussion of the economic crisis, the Canadian response to date, and what we can expect in the upcoming federal budget.
The link to the livestream will be emailed out 48 hours ahead of the event.
