Clare Wenham: women have been largely ignored in the COVID-19 response. This must change

Wenham, Clare;

Publisher: London School of Economics and Political Science

Every Thursday the UK is encouraged to ‘clap for carers’ – who are far more likely to be women. Yet the government has not considered how measures such as furlough and school closures affect women disproportionately, and there is an absence of female representation at the top of government and in the COVID-19 working group. Clare Wenham (LSE) says that this needs to change as it develops an exit strategy.
