The socio-economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic add urgency to the call to eradicate poverty, particularly in rural areas. Rural women bear a disproportionate burden in the COVID-19 crisis as agricultural producers, processors and traders, and are affected by deeply rooted gender discriminatory social norms and economic practices. This brochure considers how the pervasive inequalities between rural and urban inhabitants, rich and poor, women and men exacerbate these effects. 5 pp.
