This is an emergency unlike anything any of us have ever seen in our lifetimes.
IWDA and our partners in Asia and the Pacific are fighting the catastrophic effects of the COVID-19 crisis on many fronts.
We are witnessing an alarming surge in domestic violence cases as millions of women are locked down in unsafe homes. We’re also seeing a huge loss of livelihoods as women are more likely to hold jobs in under-regulated industries with low wages and poor protections, such as the garment industry.
