ANWS together with the Garden of Hope Foundation in Taiwan will hold a NGO CSW66 parallel event: The Silver Linings and Prospects for Women in Poverty Under the Covid-19 Crisis in Asia on 17 March at 12:00 a.m. ET (please click here for your local time).
As stated in UN Women’s articles women in Asia represent two thirds of the poor. Moreover, it is widely observed that GBV survivors often face economic abuse in addition to physical violence. Taking into account of their financial situations, survivors may find it hard to be independent, especially victims often have children with them to care for when they are accommodated into a shelter. How CSOs in Asia can help empower GBV survivors in economic means and access better employment opportunities is what we want to discuss in this parallel event.
