Sex and Covid: What are the gender dimensions of the crisis?

Covid-19 kills more men than women, yet lockdown is exacerbating age-old gendered divisions of labour.


We have postponed this webinar to now happen after the summer break. We'll update everyone on the new date shortly. 

Speakers and Full Agenda TBC

We will disscuss the key issues for us as health and care charities, and how a gendered lens might help us in our response to the crisis.

This webinar is part of a series National Voices’ Covid Conversations focusing on the impact of Covid-19 on health inequalities. Bringing together colleagues from across the health and care VCSE and beyond.

We share information, discuss key issues, and identify actions to take forward. Topics include the disproportionate ethnic impact of Covid-19 on BAME people, how charities can cope as need increases but the economy declines, food insecurity and anxiety, and the widening digital divide. These gaps need urgent attention and policy solutions. We have been delighted to be joined by hundreds of people from over 100 organisations.

The webinars inform National Voices work. They inspired Our COVID Voices, a website where people with ongoing health needs can share their experiences, and led to our Joint statement on Covid-19.

You can see the full schedule here. We look forward to hearing your views and contributions on the webinar.

All of our webinars recordings will be available to watch on our You Tube channel after the webinar has finished.

Please register and we'll circulate joining details
