Sustaining Democracy through a Pandemic: Gender and Inclusion Lens with WFD Nigeria

The importance of uniting across sectors, issues, and generations to build a healthier, more gender-equal future is clear. Views through the gender and inclusion lens are vital for effective COVID-19 response and recovery efforts. When grounded in human rights, it paves the way to a more inclusive, resilient, and sustainable future for all.

The major objective of this webinar is to ascertain how COVID-19 has or will affect women, including women with disabilities participation in politics. The webinar will help individuals take a diagnostic outlook to assess the potential impact of the situation on women’s presence in the political space while gauging the readiness of the government to ensure gender justice and equality in appointments and overall leadership.

Therefore, the focus of this discussion is to express the place of gender disparities, lack of inclusion of other vulnerable groups and inequalities in the COVID-19 situation that might widen, especially as it affects Nigerian democracy as well as to discuss opportunities for leadership inclusion within the political space now and after the pandemic.
