Women make up the majority of caregivers at home and in our communities existing trends show they have less access to sexual and reproductive health and domestic violence rises during crises. But women have also the power to be change makers in the response agenda playing a central role in communicating with families and with communities. You A news and Shoe. Shama spoke to you and women's deputy country representative in India. Niece thaw such him Bush that in any disaster in any And to make the experience across the board women goes the most one group Because or at the margins locked scared response or nutrition accordingly Aniline circumstances there's been a disproportionate amount of on big A. K. Work that falls on Amex photos dresses of their abilities. So I think it wouldn't be an underestimate. Say that any impact of calm or of any pandemic it far more on women. Good in such circumstances you really get is also a very gordon. Lead to increase in violence against remained noting discrimination against Nagging Inc among unspoiled across the globe. And there's evidence From previous is to say that This is how things out so e just to establish that the impact on Adminis- File Creek and also gone far longer because they come into the recovery petition. I'd go much ASTA People were not at dodgers So I hope that answers your question. How long is it going to take? I think it's very difficult to say anything right now. Could different countries respond to different abilities of his born and I think in Europe being the diverse country that is already seeing some interstate variances in how the disease or the virus spreading to?
