COVID-19 Pandemic Could Challenge Gains in Parenting

October 26, 2020 - Past research has attributed income-based inequalities in young children’s academic achievement and educational attainment in part to differences in the home environment; that is, to differences in what parents do and the goals that drive their behavior. However, in our studies using data on parenting behavior and parental goals over the past 30 years, we found that income-based differences in parenting have been steadily decreasing. Consequently, economically advantaged and disadvantaged parents of young children share more similar parenting behaviors and goals today than ever before. There is some evidence these changes are benefitting young children too –Reardon and Portilla find that test score gaps between kindergartners at the top and bottom of the income distribution narrowed in the first 20 years of the 21st century after increasing from the 1970s to 2000.

The COVID-19 crisis, and the economic and social restrictions that followed it, threaten that progress. The pandemic has exacerbated inequalities in families’ economic, health and educational resources that will tax low-income parents’ ability to pursue and realize their goals. Decades of research describes the toll taken by job loss, income instability, and material hardship on parent mental health, parent-child interaction, and children’s development and we can see in emerging data from the pandemic that these phenomena remain true today.

CEDAW Committee Calls for Crackdown on Trafficking of Women & Girls in the Digital Age

GENEVA (11 November 2020) — The UN women’s rights committee today called on governments to pursue all appropriate means to eliminate trafficking in women and girls, highlighting the increasing use of social media to recruit trafficking victims during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In its General Recommendation released today, the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) found that women and girls continue to be major victims of trafficking across the world, despite the existing anti-trafficking legal and policy frameworks at national and international levels.

The Committee emphasised that the realities of trafficking in women and girls now extend well beyond the offline world, pointing to recent trends of trafficking in cyberspace. The development of social media and chat apps to gain easy access to potential victims when traffickers cannot use more traditional ways to recruit women and girls for sexual exploitation during COVID-19 lockdowns was alarming, the Committee said.

NATO Marks Achievements on Gender-Related Issues

26 October 2020 - On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325 on Women, Peace and Security (WPS), NATO welcomes the achievements of experts who have contributed to practical cooperation on gender-related issues among NATO member and partner countries in the framework of the Science for Peace and Security (SPS) Programme.

According to the Secretary General’s Special Representative for Women, Peace and Security, Clare Hutchinson, “UNSCR 1325 is the foundation of the Women, Peace and Security agenda. Its adoption 20 years ago represented a significant political shift for NATO. We are moving beyond words, as we establish and implement an ambitious but achievable agenda. The work done through the NATO Science for Peace and Security Programme is an important part of how NATO achieves results.” Below are some examples of successful SPS-funded projects.

Feminist Principles for a Green New Deal

by the efforts of advocates and progressive policymakers – to secure rights-based policies and programs recognizing the global implications of US climate action and inaction. 

To truly address the root causes, as well as the scope and scale of the climate crisis, the Green New Deal must be cross-cutting in its approach, steadfast in feminist principles, and strive to combat historical oppressions. It must advance a transformative feminist agenda that centers the leadership of women, and acknowledges and addresses the generational impacts of colonization and anti-Black racism. It must end oppression against and be led and articulated by frontline, impacted communities – especially women of color, Black women, Indigenous women, people with disabilities, LGBTQIAP+ people, people from the Global South, migrant and refugee communities, and youth.
