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.
