Women and their families’ food insecurity during a pandemic in Brazil
This report presents preliminary results from the research “COVID-19, risk, impact and gender response” carried out in Brazil by Fiocruz and partner institutions. Several subjects related to the impact of COVID-19 in women’s lives are addressed by the research, but this report focuses specifically on food insecurity. We present stories showing the struggles faced by the women interviewed during the research, their
ways of confronting these situations and their perceptions about how the state handled the necessary measures in order to deal with the harsh reality in which they live.
