1. Mental health support for racialized women at risk of gender-based violence during a global pandemic: An intersectionality-informed approach

Date: Wednesday, March 08, 2023
Time: 12:00 – 1:00


Violence against women and girls has increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. The UN Women has referred to this rise in violence as the “Shadow Pandemic.” Professor Khanlou will draw from a knowledge synthesis project she led on the mental health impacts of gender-based violence (GBV) on racialized women during the COVID-19 pandemic. The project was funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and multiple knowledge transfer outputs were developed. Dr. Khanlou will focus on implications for policy and practice, such as considering gender-based violence as a public health issue and integrating gender-responsive programming to COVID-19 responses.
