Feminist Recovery Plan Project
A Feminist Recovery Plan for Covid-19 and Beyond: Learning from Grassroots Activism
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.
This policy brief summarises the findings of the project: it outlines the key elements for a post-pandemic feminist recovery
and offers recommendations useful at national and transnational levels.
This project is coordinated by Serena Natile.
