Helping Perth's Homeless Women

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on all aspects of our lives. One of the most concerning consequences of the pandemic has been the sharp increase in domestic violence and homelessness among women. The closure of many support services and community programs has made it more difficult for women to seek help when they need it. Moreover, the economic downturn caused by the pandemic has made it more difficult for women to escape abusive relationships or find safe and affordable housing.

Zonta Says NOW Projects

Women experience lower rates of recovery compared to men in the aftermath of severe weather events such as extreme heat, drought, fires, storms, and floods. This disparity can be attributed to systemic gender inequality, which results in women having limited access to resources and opportunities compared to men. Consequently, with each climate-related disaster, the existing gender gaps in education, income, technological access, and legal rights further widen, exacerbating violence against women.
