Between December 1, 2019 and July 16, 2020, this document has been updated daily with the goal of compiling media updates related to domestic violence, sexual violence, child maltreatment, gender equality and women’s rights during COVID-19 in selected countries. The objective of this process was to monitor and understand media coverage of these issues to inform the development and implementation of policies, programs, and approaches to prevent and address domestic violence, sexual violence, child maltreatment, and gender inequality in the context of COVID-19.
The collected data was not analyzed but can be used to explore a variety of research questions that center around understanding predominant issues covered by the media in relation to domestic/sexual violence and child maltreatment in the context of COVID-19. Individuals, practitioners, organizations, and policy makers may use this resource to inform prevention and intervention strategies during times of crisis and disaster.
