Dual impact of COVID-19 and violence on Black and minoritised women and girls

Imkaan has published a report on the impact of the two pandemics: VAWG and COVID-19 on Black and Minoritised Women and Girls.

The report argues that during the two pandemics, violence against women and girls is increased but for Black and minoritised women and girls,
racialised discrimination and the disproportionate impact of structural inequalities also become exacerbated. No one is immune to coronavirus COVID-19, but structural inequality reproduces disproportionately across diverse communities and exacerbates existing racialised inequalities. For any woman and girl with protected characteristics, the two pandemics increase her risks at multiple interlocking levels.
