Wednesday News Series: Building a gender equal world in times of crisis
Millions of people have fled from Ukraine. Mostly women and children in search of safety. They seek refuge in Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Moldova, Romania and increasingly across Europe and the world. Whether it is war or Covid-19, times of crisis make critical challenges more visible – be it violence against women, restrictive gender norms, or xenophobia.
For more than 20 years, Ashoka Fellow Agata Teutsch has been addressing these challenges by building networks of women across Poland and Eastern Europe to mainstream anti-discrimination guidelines and practices across schools, workplaces and communities. Join us on May 25, as we explore with her how Fundacja Autonomia has been responding to the Ukrainian refugee crisis and Covid-19, and the role we can all play to ensure girls grow up to be changemakers.
This conversation is part of an insight series on what's next for gender equity, supported by Beiersdorf. It will last about 30 minutes. Bring your questions!
