CAREWORK NETWORK WEBINAR - Women’s rights, care work and policy during COVID19

When and Where

Monday, November 02, 2020 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm



We are very excited to announce this second carework presentation in our webinar series. This particular effort is a collaboration between the Carework Network, and the Southern Gerontological Society.

"Women’s rights, care work and policy during COVID19" will showcase two international scholars reflecting on the challenges for women in North and South American who are disproportionately affected by the current crisis. Professor Nancy Folbre will provide a general talk on the impact of COVID-19 on the US and other affluent countries and Dr. Maria Nieves Rico will describe how COVID-19 has specifically posed threats to women’s rights in Latin America. This webinar provides an opportunity to consider our common challenges as well as how place and context demand a different response.

This webinar will be presented live in English and Spanish with closed captioning so that English and Spanish speakers may participate equally.

Monday, November 2, 2020 from 4:00 - 5:00 pm Eastern Standard Time*

*Please see if daylight savings time (November 1) effects the time this may be on your calendar.
