This year challenged us in new and unexpected ways, exposing many hard truths about inequities around the world. Women have demonstrated incredible strength as they’ve had to keep their families, businesses, and communities from falling apart. And women still stand on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis as health care workers, caregivers, innovators, and community organizers. Now, a year into this pandemic, it’s becoming clear that women have been pushed to their limits and are overworked, overtired, and underappreciated.
Throughout Women’s History Month, Oxfam is championing the women who have led us, inspired us, and worked hard for us. We are lifting up the sisterhood that supports and recognizes women as changemakers in their communities.
