We present the results of the first project of the WWO, Impact of Covid-19 on Women in Latin America and the Caribbean, carried out by WUCWO in partnership with CELAM, in the second half of 2021.

In June 2021, the World Union of Catholic Women's Organisations (WUCWO) decided to create the World Women's Observatory to give visibility to women, especially the most vulnerable, whose sufferings and potential seem "invisible", in order to inspire and generate:

  • pastoral strategies of the Catholic Church and religious bodies of other faiths;
  • synergies on the part of NGOs;
  • public policies of states;
  • contributions to the international agenda that favour the integral human development of women and their families, communities and peoples.

Together with the Latin American Episcopal Council (CELAM), WUCWO has carried out this first project on the theme Impact of Covid-19 on Women in Latin America and the Caribbean, with a mainly qualitative value.
This work consists of three parts: a state of the art, an expert report and a report on the surveys carried out in 23 Latin American and Caribbean countries, with testimonies on what women experienced during the pandemic. Each part concludes with a theological-pastoral contribution.
The main conclusion that is important to highlight is that, in addition to being resilient, women have acted as community Samaritans during this pandemic. Used to taking care of their own and others, they have been quick to react and to show solidarity. It is encouraging to see how they reinvented themselves to move forward and create support networks.
