March 8: International Women’s Day – Women stand at the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis, as health care workers, caregivers, innovators, community organizers and as some of the most exemplary and effective national leaders in combating the pandemic. The crisis has highlighted both the centrality of their contributions and the disproportionate burdens that women carry.

This year’s theme for the International Day, “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world”, celebrates the tremendous efforts by women and girls around the world in shaping a more equal future and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

As part of its annual advocacy campaign in favour of women’s rights and empowerment, Dianova International conducted brief interviews with several women. In a few key questions, these interviews aim to highlight the impact of the pandemic. On the personal and professional lives of these women. And on the women’s rights movement as a whole.
