Illustrated a scoping report on Women in Urban Informal Work & Covid-19 in IndiaFor ICRW

We created a beautifully illustrated scoping report on Women in Urban Informal Work & Covid-19 in India This study was commissioned by  International Center for research on Women (ICRW).

Our carefully designed visual narratives in the report aim to reflect how COVID-19-related health and economic shocks, and the policy responses to them, interacted with pre-existing vulnerabilities to impact livelihoods, the experience of GBV and healthcare outcomes for women who work in the urban informal economy in India. We have also shown through our illustrations in the report how one of the socio-economic impact of the covid-19 forced Women workers to bear a greater risk of wage penalty after the Lockdown which led many households to cope up with COVID-19 by eating fewer times and consuming smaller quantities as well as lower nutritional quality food as well as becoming increasingly dependent on the Public Distribution System.

We highlighted in the report through our illustration how The COVID-19 pandemic has wrought a global socio-economic crisis, with profound implications for the well-being of individuals, households and communities. Our visual narratives also represent how the pandemic has further deepened existing social inequalities, heightened the risks for gender-based violence (GBV), and limited the access to health services, including sexual and reproductive health among marginalized groups.
