While the world didn’t know much about COVID-19 yet, I was certain of one thing: a pandemic would lead to devastating setbacks for women everywhere. I’d spent 2019 telling anyone who would listen that 2020 was going to be a landmark year for gender equality. I spent the rest of the year collaborating with partners on a major push to expand women’s power and influence in the United States. Disease outbreaks always impact women disproportionately, and COVID-19 was unlikely to be the exception. Governments, businesses, and organizations will begin including women’s voices at all levels of decision-making.
