The COVID-19 pandemic has deepened inequality between men and women and reversed decades of limited and fragile progress on gender equality and women's rights, the United Nations chief said on Monday.

Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned young women from civil society organisations at a virtual town hall meeting that without a concerned response, we risk losing a generation or more of gains.

Since the start of the pandemic, he said women have been on the front lines of the response, as healthcare workers, teachers, essential staff and as carers in their families and communities.
