During the Québec Women’s Centres – Week of Action, the Centre des femmes solidaires et engagées is mobilized in support of a post-COVID economic relaunch in Québec that speaks to the needs of women. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone around the world since last spring. However, the crisis has not affected us all equally. Over the past few months, the inequality gap has grown wider and wider. Those experiencing poverty, those who have been racialized, the elderly, and women have all been hit disproportionately. The pandemic’s impact on the living conditions of Black (im)migrant women is a particularly stark example. That being so, we feel it is essential to put feminist issues at the centre of post-COVID economic recovery efforts.
Below you’ll find the Statement from the Québec Women’s Centres in Favour of a Feminist post-COVID Recovery and a short 2 minute and 30 second video in French (subtitled in English), “Bâtir féministe pour une société solidaire”. We hope that these tools can help guide our efforts in the months to come.
