Posted on

The BA Women Studies and Social Transformation Program (WSST) released a booklet entitled The Effects of COVID-19 on Egyptian Women. It examines the policies and procedures adopted by the Egyptian government since the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, in comparison with the recommendations issued by international women's organizations, namely the Inter-Agency Network on Women and Gender Equality (IANWGE). This research covers five main aspects: health, social welfare, economic recovery, multilateral cooperation, and social cohesion.

The booklet summarizes a number of recommendations that aim to maintain the rights and gains granted to women after 25 years since the release of the Beijing Platform for Action promoting equality, development, and peace for all women around the world.
