Women, Business and the Law is collecting new data related to the COVID-19 pandemic in its questionnaires. The research questions collect additional data on measures that governments have implemented to address the challenges faced by women, as employees and as entrepreneurs, during the pandemic. The data analysis will include information on temporary and permanent measures related to employment regulation, social protection, parenthood benefits, and childcare. It will also include measures affecting access to family courts, justice systems, and specialized services aimed at protecting women from violence. More details are available here.
