Link: A World Economic Forum report says the pandemic may set women back by a whole generation

At the onset of the pandemic, analysts feared it would mark a disaster for women. The strain of coronavirus lockdowns would exact a disproportionate toll on the sexes — forcing more women out of the workforce, deepening their load of uncompensated labor, leaving them more vulnerable to domestic violence.

Some will cheer this, but it is economic and moral devastation. A whole generation lost is going to impact the country’s growth and stability for years.
