More than a month passed since the implementation of enhanced community quarantine in many parts of the country. Millions of Filipinos, especially those in the margins, have suffered from suspension of work, loss of income and livelihood, and insufficient relief from the government.
Worse, this COVID-19 pandemic has posed disproportionate impact on women workers as many employed women workers are at the frontline of COVID-19 response. Seven out of 10 health care jobs in the Philippines comprise of women, while thousands of women also work in the service sector and continue to provide services amid the pandemic.
