The pandemic amplifies and heightens all existing inequalities. These inequalities in turn shape who is affected, the severity of that impact, and our efforts at recovery. The COVID-19 pandemic and its social and economic impacts have created an unparalleled global crisis. We hope you have enjoyed this season of the Femininja Podcast. Season 3 is right around the corner.

Maureen  Olyaro, Irene Muchomba are discussing the shift to online discourse also risks narrowing the space for women’s civil society organizations to operate and to undertake urgent advocacy and service delivery in support of women’s rights. Security Council resolution 2242 (2015) was in fact one of the first Council resolutions to recognize health pandemics as part of the peace and security landscape, and highlight the need for the principles of prevention, protection, and equal participation and leadership of women to be part of all responses.

Climate Justice Issues

Climate Justice Issues

2020-11-1628:55

Mwanahamisi Singano is leading us in such an exciting conversation today. Covid 19 has further highlighted the disproportionate impacts of climate change on marginalized and disenfranchised populations who are the least responsible for climate change. The COVID-19 pandemic provides a good example of rights violations increasing during a crisis – and an emphatic disproof of the assertion that ‘we are all in this together’. Refugees and migrants certainly paid a heavier price during a global pandemic that many believed impacted all human beings equally.  
Gender Based Violence

Gender Based Violence

Kennedy Otina leads us in the discussion regarding Violence against women and girls is increasing globally as the COVID-19 pandemic combines with economic and social stresses and measures to restrict contact and movement. Crowded homes, substance abuse, limited access to services and reduced peer support are exacerbating these conditions. Before the pandemic, it was estimated that one in three women will experience violence during their lifetimes. Many of these women are now trapped in their homes with their abusers. 
Unpaid Care Work

Unpaid Care Work

Josephine Ireri and Hellen Apila bring to light one of the most important conversations regarding the current situation women across the globe are facing. The COVID-19 global crisis has made starkly visible the fact that the world’s formal economies and the maintenance of our daily lives are built on the invisible and unpaid labor of women and girls. With children out of school, intensified care needs of older persons and ill family members, and overwhelmed health services, demands for care work in a COVID- 19 world have intensified exponentially. 
Halima Abba Zaid Ali and  Editah  Ochieng are facilitating the conversation for us regarding SRHR impacts. The COVID-19 pandemic poses devastating risks for women and girls in fragile and conflict-affected contexts. Disruptions to critical health, humanitarian, and development programs can have life and death consequences where health systems may already be overwhelmed or largely non-existent. 
Economic Impacts

Economic Impacts

2020-10-3152:58

Nicole Maloba and Rachel Kagoiya lead us in a discussion on the economic impacts of COVID-19 in the lives of women, across different sectors. Women’s economic and productive lives have been affected by disproportionately and differently from men. Across the globe, women are the majority (between 60 to 70 percent) working in the informal sector, which is characterized by low pays, no job security, less access to social protection, limited health services, and worse women are more prone to violence and harassment in the workplace. In building better and forward, every COVID-19 recovery plan must include the leadership and voices of women in the decision-making.

The patriarchy has been an overarching theme mentioned in previous episodes and we decided to dedicate an entire episode to unpack patriarchy, how it manifests, why it persists, and ways we must consistently challenge and the roadmap of how to dismantle it.
