Fordham Law Women’s Third Annual Symposium: Covid-19 and the Impact on Gender
Fordham Law Women’s symposium this year, which has been organized into three panels, is about the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on gender.

The second panel looks at COVID’s impact on marginalized women, including how it’s affected people of color, people with disabilities, and those in the LGBTQ community.
