Here is a word from Hollaback! Bahamas. “Quarantines, curfews, and shutdowns are all necessary parts of the response to the #COVID19 crisis, but we need #FeministPolicy to ensure it works for everyone. Women, girls, LGBT+ people, people experiencing poverty, people with disabilities, unhoused people, and migrants all need to be specifically considered to ensure they are not further marginalized by the decisions being made. Please read, endorse, and share the call for states to implement feminist policy.” Please read, endorse, and share the call for states to implement feminist policy.
