Thank you and goodbye
Congratulations on finishing the course “Gender and Labour in the Global South”! We hope you enjoyed the course as much as we did designing it for you.
Hopefully, this course gave you an interesting overview of the importance of gender in the labour market. The central questions of this course were:
- Does the COVID-19 pandemic affect women and men differently in the workplace? If so, why?
Now that you have finished the course, what would your answers be to these questions? Look through your notes and consider if and how your answers have changed.
If you would like to continue reading about this course’s topics, there are two additional texts attached to this step:
“Migration and the Gender Impacts of COVID-19 on Nepalese Women”
“Examining Decent Work During 2 COVID-19: With Reference to Female Migrant Workers in South Asia”
The COVID-19 pandemic had a major impact on migrant workers, especially on women. These two texts will give you a deeper insight into the topic of migration during the COVID-19 pandemic.
