The Nordic Women Mediators discuss women, peace and security in the light of Covid-19
Women are at the forefront of the fight against Covid-19, acting as first responders and peacemakers in their communities and arguing for approaches that promote sustainable peace, gender equality and social justice. At the same time, the spread of Covid-19 has increased women's vulnerability. In several countries women's organizations have pushed back against militarized and securitized measures that have been imposed, restricting democracy.
As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the Nordic Women Mediators 2020 annual meeting that was planned for June, has been rescheduled for the autumn. It was replaced by a virtual meeting to discuss how Covid-19 affects the work with women, peace and security.
–We adapt in order to respond to the reality we are facing, says Anna Möller Loswick, Desk Officer in charge of the Swedish Women's Mediatior Network at FBA.
