Feminist Recovery Plan Project

A Feminist Recovery Plan for Covid-19 and Beyond: Learning from Grassroots Activism

Artwork: “Until dignity becomes a habit” by Marga RH

The Covid-19 crisis has exposed deep inequalities embedded in national and international socio-economic systems and legal frameworks. Over-stretched social services and an over-reliance on unpaid and precarious labour compensate for the inadequacies of social infrastructure, economic policies and labour regulation, instead of inspiring more social justice-driven approaches. The crisis offers an opportunity to identify the limits of such systems and reimagine the policies that shape them. This project aims to collectively design a reparative and redistributive feminist recovery plan for Covid-19 and beyond by placing grassroots activism at the centre of policy-making, learning from the past and looking at the future.
