ASAWC Statement on the Impact of the Pandemic on Gender and Equity in Academia

The African Studies Association Women’s Caucus recently released this powerful statement of solidarity about Covid-19, Gender Equity, and Academia.

This statement does an excellent job of highlighting the inequities that have been exacerbated by this ongoing pandemic. The African Feminist Initiative team urges everyone to read this statement to gain a deeper understanding of the issues at hand.

Thank you to the leadership team of the ASA Women’s Caucus for putting these words to paper!
