Feminist Economic Analysis of Women’s Precarious Disempowerment: COVID-19 in Uzbekistan
October 5 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
This presentation provides a feminist analysis of the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic on women’s precarious livelihoods and the lack of multi-dimensional empowerment in Uzbekistan due to a market-driven economy, liberalization and neoliberalism – structures that are ill-prepared to deal with gender equality and pandemic. Feminist analysis aims to examine the gendered nature of the pandemic and its social and economic outcomes by looking at the unequal distribution of pandemic risks. Viewing these conditions through a conceptual feminist framework and lenses of empowerment helps to understand the differential impact of the pandemic on women’s sense of agency and outcomes, given that women in particular experience multiple inequities and hence heightened precarity in neoliberal economy.
