The Department of Gender and Sexualities of the University of Malta is organising a free webinar on Women and COVID. The main objective of this webinar is to bring together researchers located in different countries to discuss how COVID has affected women.
The aim of this discussion is to delineate the impact the first wave has had on women’s lives, and the issues we would like our respective governments and supranational entities such as the EU, Council of Europe and United Nations to tackle in the immediate future.
