Prior to the pandemic, we lived in a world where women had battled gender inequality in the workplace for years, though with countless setbacks, it had seemed that a trend of increasing opportunity and accessibility for all that identify as non-male was emerging.

However, the challenges that all people faced around the world during COVID, have had, and are likely to lead to, further disproportionate complications for minorities and women.
