Sama Resource Group for Women and Health & People’s Health Movement (PHM) Global invite you for the panel discussion titled
‘NOT IN LOCKDOWN: VOICES AND STRUGGLES AGAINST GENDER, RACIAL AND SOCIAL INJUSTICES’
Date: 25th June, 2020 | Timings: 5.30 PM to 7 PM IST (GMT+5:30 Hrs)
With each passing day in the unprecedented crisis situation around COVID-19 pandemic, we are being witness to pre-existing inequalities and injustices that have been laid out around us. The resolve and strength of people’s movements and resistance feel more pertinent today as ever felt in the history of such struggles.
COVID-19 crisis and the “lockdown” has gendered impact in terms of workload and reduced economic opportunities, lack of access to health facilities, nutrition and increase in incidence of gender-based violence, communalisation and racialisation along with stigma associated with COVID.
As committed to building people’s voices and movements on health for all, the critical inter-linkages of gender and its intersectionality with social, economic and political determinants of health; identities of race, caste, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation; varied geographies, and contexts become an extremely important area to look into. Realising that COVID-19 pandemic is foremost a concern of public health crisis, its close association with human rights, social justice, and health equity have been clearly visible across varied regions. We feel that sharing stories and experiences of our resistance would give us more strength and inspiration to learn from each other.
