Sick of Inequality: The Pandemic and Gender Discrimination

The coronavirus pandemic is disproportionately affecting women and girls: Reports of domestic violence surged as the world went into lockdown, and girls in developing countries who miss school due to closures are less likely than their male counterparts to return. On this episode, the season finale of #DearWorldLive, we’ll discuss what we must do to help protect and empower women during and after the coronavirus crisis.

#DearWorldLive is a new online discussion show from Doha Debates, hosted by Doha Debates’ correspondent and Course Correction host Nelufar Hedayat. Each weekly episode focuses on a different aspect of the coronavirus and its impact on our lives and our world.
