Contemporary Challenges of Gender Equality and Discrimination

Hosted & Sponsored by:

Several intervention strategies have been implemented to ensure gender equality and women’s right over the years. However, gender inequality and discrimination against women are still endemic in most societies. The emergence of COVID-19 has exacerbated the existing inequalities and discrimination, thereby reversing the little gain made over time. The forms these challenges take are multi-dimensional. This paper hopes to contribute to the debate on the contemporary issues that hold the continual violation of the woman’s rights that both national and international laws seek to protect.
