“There has been a troubling sign that the recession is a “She-cession,” that women's jobs are more severely impacted than those of men. New research from the Fund finds that the more accurate term may be “Mom-cessions” that women with young children, mothers, particularly less educated ones, were the most adversely affected group during the crisis,”
4. Two windows, Georgieva and Freeland speaking
5. SOUNBITE (English) Chrystia Freeland, Canada’s Deputy Prime Minister
“The data shows that this is a pretty common situation. You know, the single group of people who have been the hardest hit by this are low wage working mothers. And in putting together our budget, here it is. You see the cover and the cover says a lot about what's in it. In our budget, one of our starting points was this is a group that has been hard hit. We have to lift this group up in order to restart our whole economy,”

“There still can be a bias to kind of say, well, real infrastructure investment that drives real jobs and growth that has to be physical infrastructure. It has to be something done by men wearing hard hats and gloves, you know, building a bridge that's an infrastructure investment that's going to drive economic growth. Building a daycare center that's just for the ladies, that's not actually real economic policy. And you and I know that's not the case. Building a daycare center is a huge driver of economic growth for us in Canada. We've already seen it in Quebec, which has a system of affordable early learning and childcare universally across the province, and they have seen it has boosted women's labor force participation and boosted economic growth,”

“Everywhere, gender-based budgeting helps in advanced economies, in particular by advancing early childhood development and making it possible for women to count on it. In developing countries, it is more around rural roads, safety of transportation, so women can go to work without fear of being attacked or raped, which unfortunately is still a problem in many, many less secure places. But when you look at the budget with this gender lens, you come up with a different direction of your scarce public resources that open up more contribution of women,” Georgieva emphasized.

““Here is our message we must not allow gender equality to slip back. We have to advance policies that could not only help women recover from the crisis, but also strengthen their position in society and their contribution to our economies,”
