This document is the result of focus groups, consultations and analytical work that began in July 2020 thanks to the project of the Ukrainian Women's Fund (UWF) “Women's movement at the frontline of response to post-COVID-19 challenges in Ukraine” supported by the European Union through the Rapid Response Mechanism for civil society organisations in the Eastern Partnership, and as part of its COVID-19 support to Ukraine. The Ukrainian Women's Fund has facilitated the discussions and presented generalized version of the Strategy on December 10, 2020 for civic and governmental organizations, foundations and international donors.
The strategy summarizes and describes not only the problems faced by women during quarantine, but also the potential of women and their associations. It is useful for the whole society, which has found itself in the new conditions. Developers of the Strategy are sure that if it is guided by daily activities, then in 10-15 years no one will have a question why conduct a gender analysis when developing strategic decisions. If gender-sensitive approaches become a perceived need not only for women's / feminist organizations, but also for donors, business, government and local governments, changes in women's rights awareness will become a reality.
