COVID-19 Impact on People with Protected Characteristics (Women & Equalities)

In April 2020, MWNUK responded to the Womens Equalities Committee on its inquiry investigating the impact of COVID-19 on people with protected characteristics.

Key issues highlighted included:

- Despite rise in domestic abuse, Muslim women were finding it harder to report and ask for help

- lack of safe affordable and temporary accommodation

- Risk of rise in forced marriage, honour based abuse and FGM

- Economic situation being exacerbated due to them already being in lower paid jobs

- Lack of counselling services and risks of numerous pop up listening services

- Maternal health disparities
