Gender Justice in global Supply Chains

Written by This report “aims to unpack the various features and amplifiers of the COVID-19 emergency and its interlinkages with other crises, including the economic lockdown, increased job loss, hunger and homelessness...disparities of opportunity, wealth and power... racial and gender violence, discrimination... and escalating climate disasters” (Global Civil Society Report, 2020) 11 July 2020

“This paper focuses on women and girls because of their strong presence in numerous supply chains. They experience economic human rights violations in different ways to men. The reasons for this range from discriminatory socio-economic structures and practices to patriarchal and class-based social and cultural norms” (Borkenhagen et al., 2020).
