The Corona virus and its social implications for women. Crisis management in Egypt, Lebanon and Tunisia

The spread of Coronavirus accompanied by anxiety and uncertainty, which only heightened people's stress and confusing government policies about the pandemic.

The documents present and analyse the approaches adopted by three Arab countries, Egypt, Lebanon and Tunisia. These three documents dealt with the crisis caused by the Corona epidemic and were particularly interrupted when it affected women in terms of health and living, how Governments dealt with these effects, and how the women's movement, trade unions and civil society acted within the government. The three documents provide an overview of how to activate and improve the approaches used.
