In collaboration with TheOpenAsia.net media portal, UNESCO Almaty Office has launched the #WomenRendezvous online campaign to support Central Asian women during the COVID-19 crisis.
However, today, the media and news materials do not adequately report on the role of women in fighting this pandemic. In this regard, the #WomenRendezvous campaign will focus on the problems faced by women due to long-term isolation and their perspectives of solutions. In addition, an important part of the campaign will be a real stories sharing regards women and their contribution to the crisis response.
#WomenRendezvous can be a platform for all Central Asian women to express their contribution to overcoming the COVID-19 crisis, prevent negative consequences during long-term confinment (including domestic violence against women and girls), promote gender equality, expand the rights and opportunities of all women, as well as raising public awareness of the role of women in the unprecedented fight against coronavirus.
