On the occasion of the European Gender Equality Week, the INTA committee debates on 27 October the economic impact of COVID-19 on women in international trade. The pandemic has created a "perfect storm" threatening to push women out of their jobs and economic activities and to undo the recent gains in women's economic empowerment. Will gender mainstreaming in trade policy and free trade agreements help? - is the question that INTA Members will put forward to two experts, Dr Amrita Bahri (Mexico Autonomous Institute of Technology - ITAM) and Ms Anoush der Boghossian (WTO).
