Her Say Her Way - Pledge for Inclusive Recovery

As Canada begins to move toward a post-pandemic world, many are still left facing the aftermath of the pandemic – particularly racialized women. “In lots of ways, people have called it the women’s pandemic,” said Andrea Gunraj, vice-president of public engagement at the Canadian Women’s Foundation. Research shows that marginalized women with intersectional identities have encountered unique and difficult struggles both throughout the pandemic and in pandemic recovery. As we continue forward, we must ask:


“What support is needed to form an inclusive pandemic recovery plan?”

From February to May of 2022, we at the York Region Women’s Foundation (YRWF) reached out to Black and South Asian women to ask what they needed for an inclusive COVID-19 recovery.



Here’s what they had to say…

The Her Say Her Way snapshot provides an overview of the key findings in both the experiences of diverse Black and South Asian women and the resources they need to recover.
