Unequal impact? Coronavirus and the gendered economic impact

Inquiry

Unequal impact? Coronavirus and the gendered economic impact

The Women and Equalities Committee is launching three sub-inquiries, drawing on evidence to our Unequal impact: Coronavirus (Covid-19) and the impact on people with protected characteristics inquiry. Read more about our decision to launch the sub-inquires.

In this sub-inquiry, we want to look in more detail at how the economic impact of coronavirus has impacted men and women differently; for example, because of existing economic inequalities between men and women or the over-representation of women in certain types of work – but also because of actions the Government has taken. 

This inquiry is currently accepting evidence

The committee wants to hear your views. We welcome submissions from anyone with answers to the questions in the call for evidence. You can submit evidence until Wednesday 5 August 2020.
