NEW—The social & economic effects of the #COVID19 pandemic threaten to reverse progress in #GenderEquality by widening gender gaps that already existed in employment, education & gender-based violence, according to our new study in @TheLancet
🗣“Based on previous crises, it is also likely men will be rehired at rates higher than women. This combination can result in severe impact to long-term income and career progression for #women globally,” said IHME Postdoctoral Scholar and co-author Dr. @luisaflorr
Based on data from 193 countries, a substantial amount of research shows that DIRECT health effects of the #pandemic have impacted 🚹 more than 🚺. Conversely, existing evidence indicates that INDIRECT effects of #COVID19 have affected women disproportionately. #GenderInequality

10 THINGS MEN CAN DO TO PREVENT GENDER VIOLENCE @threadreaderapp 1. Approach sexual harassment & forms of #gender #violence as a MEN’S issue involving men of all ages & socioeconomic, racial/ ethnic backgrounds. View men not only as possible offenders, but as empowered bystanders
If someone you know is abusing his partner – or is disrespectful or abusive to girls and women in general – try to talk to him about it. Urge him to seek help. Or if you don’t know what to do, consult a friend. #SpeakUp #BystanderIntervention
Question your own attitudes. Don’t be defensive when something you do or say ends up hurting someone else. Try hard to understand how your own attitudes & actions might inadvertently perpetuate sexism and violence, & work towards changing them.
