According to the United Nations Population Fund, pandemics such as the one we’re living at the moment make existing inequalities even worse. Women, girls and marginalised groups, such as people with disabilities and/or in poverty, can be more affected than some. As mobility and transport is restricted and socio-economic problems aggravated, we need to understand how women and minority groups are being affected, now more than ever. We’d like to hear from women of all backgrounds how they are being affected by this new context we’re living in, how do you think your gender, age, location, etc., is influencing your living at the moment.
We are interested in collecting your experiences, using your voices to inform future guidance, both local and extra-local, for service providers and public policies related to transport and beyond. Contact us through email@example.com with your story. It could be anything from a short paragraph to a 2-page report on your experience. We’ll compile the stories and post it in our webpage anonymously. Stay safe.
