When I wrote this back in October 2020, the predictions for how COVID-19 would affect women were dire. Sadly, they have come to pass and continue to increase: economic losses and gender-based violence in particular. It was hard to narrow down and categorize solutions offered by Mercy Corps programs, but this article includes how mentorship helps women stay in business, technology connects them to jobs, and at the policy level, including women in peace-building efforts — all can make a difference.
