WANTED: Donegal women's experience of the pandemic matters

A year on Covid-19 Impact Survey for women

WANTED: Donegal women's experience of the pandemic matters

Donegal Women’s Network conducted a Covid-19 impact survey with 832 women living across Donegal taking part a year ago.

These survey results provided a snapshot into the lived experiences of women during the March-June 2020 restriction period.

The data gathered identified a series of issues impacting women across the county. The data further highlighted that the pandemic had created additional stresses for women in the county and added pressure to existing gender inequalities and gender stereotypes.

A year on Donegal Women’s Network wants to hear from women living in Donegal again.

"We have developed a follow up survey and we are asking women to share with us their experiences of life through the pandemic over the last year, said Danielle Bonner, development worker with the NCCWN-Donegal Women's Network.

She added: "Collecting this information from you will help inform our future work and allow us to document and bring a local gender lens to the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on women’s lives and feed into local post-pandemic strategies to support women."

The information gathered in this survey will be stored anonymously (unless you have agreed to be contacted for a follow-up with a member of staff) and securely.

It will not be possible to identify you in any of the publications that may result from this survey.
