In times of major social crisis, a gendered and feminist perspective exposes the priorities and biases of public policy. It is also an important lens for evaluating the capacity of policies – or lack thereof – to meet the needs of women and vulnerable social groups as a whole, while highlighting their disproportionate impact on these groups, which constitute the majority of the population. For these reasons, EIPR launched a gender tracker to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic on women and other vulnerable social groups in Egypt, with the hope that a gendered perspective will allow opportunities to remedy measures that do not consider gendered impacts or avoid public policies that could harm certain groups. 

Loan repayments, domestic violence, contraception and perinatal services are among the topics considered.
