Graça Machel, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Dr. Vera Songwe, and Maria Ramos have written an open letter outlining the multiple impacts the COVID-19 pandemic is having on African women. They call for bold action in response, with women and women's leadership placed at the centre of recovery efforts.
"COVID-19 presents us with unprecedented opportunities for the regeneration of the African socio-economic landscape and the movement towards a just, equitable and sustainably prosperous continent. Let us dare not squander this opportunity for a rebirth."
