Do you have a personal story related to COVID-19? We want to hear from you!
OWAA is currently working on revising our Delaware Women and COVID-19 report. While our first report focused on data, our new report will highlight stories about the impact of COVID-19 on Delaware women. Real-life stories from Delaware women can make a BIG difference in helping policymakers understand the needs of Delaware families. But to do this, we need stories to include in our report. Your voice and experience matter. Delaware women are disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in everything from working on the frontlines to unemployment, to health disparities, and an imbalance in caregiving responsibilities. Decision-makers need to hear how this unprecedented crisis impacts the women in our state.
Consider sharing your story about how COVID-19 has impacted you and your loved ones. The impacts of the pandemic could include:
- Being laid off or furloughed from your job and/or access to unemployment insurance
- Losing you job or fear of losing your job because of child care issues
- Balancing the demands of caregiving and remaining the in workforce
- Concerns about accessing healthcare, food, or stable housing during the pandemic
