This publication summarizes the data, research and policy work produced by UN Women on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on women and girls, including how it is affecting extreme poverty, employment, health,
unpaid care and violence against women and girls. The publication also brings into focus the paucity of gender data and calls for greater investment and prioritization of data on the gendered effects of the crisis. The
report draws on the UN Secretary-General’s policy brief on COVID-19 and women, UN Women Spotlight on Gender, COVID-19 and the SDGs, UN Women thematic policy briefs focused on COVID-19, as well emerging
data from UN Women’s rapid gender assessments. Estimates on extreme poverty by sex and age presented in the publication are the result of a UN Women and UNDP collaboration with the Frederick S. Pardee Center for
International Futures at the University of Denver. Additional resources related to the report, including a full list of references, endnotes, data tables and an accompanying technical note for the analysis on extreme poverty
by sex and age, can be found at: bit.ly/2G3rL9z.
