Women have been on the front lines of the response since the beginning as essential workers, healthcare workers, decision-makers, vaccine developers, caretakers, teachers, and superhumans; and they have been hit the hardest- both economically and socially- from the pandemic's secondary impacts. Droves of women across the region have lost their livelihoods due to economic closures - the effects have been more severe for Black and Brown women who saturate the service sector and make up the largest share of low-income workers. Philanthropy and Grantmakers have an opportunity to ensure Black and Brown women are at the center of and leading recovery efforts.
