The July-September issue of Unesco Courier features articles by women, giving women’s perspective on the post-pandemic era.
“As nurses, caregivers or teachers, women have been on the front line in the fight against the pandemic. They have been hit hard by the social and economic crises, confronted with domestic violence amplified by the lockdowns – yet their views have not been heard enough.
This issue paints a sobering picture of our times – highlights the fault-lines exposed by the health crisis, and shows the magnitude of the challenges ahead. It also underlines the potential for scientific, cultural and educational co-operation that this unprecedented event has revealed. If the reflections, the desire for change, and the movements of mutual aid that have emerged are not short-lived, the world really could become a more united, more sustainable and more egalitarian place.”
