Wāhine face challenges in COVID-19 recovery

The Minister for Women is encouraging groups that work with wāhine Māori to apply for a new $1 million COVID-19 recovery fund aimed at supporting women and women’s rights.

Julie Anne Genter says issues related to gender equality can take a backseat during emergencies and crises, resulting in worse outcomes for women and girls.

Greater loss of income, increased instances of domestic violence, and increased caring responsibilities all impact on women.

Many NGOs that support women have reduced income and volunteer numbers due to the impacts of COVID-19, and at the same time, they have many more people needing their support and/or services.

Applications will be available for the fund from the Ministry for Women, and will close on Monday 15 June. More information on the fund can be found at https://women.govt.nz/news/covid-19-and-women/covid-19-community-fund
