COVID-19-induced restrictions on movement, along with the associated economic and social stress, have led to a notable increase in gender-based violence, particularly in the developing world. The social distancing and quarantine measures have also increased the need for online ways to disseminate information on risks and services, as well as to offer support. Fotini Christia and Elizabeth Parker-Magyar (along with co-authors Horacio Larreguy and Norhan Muhab) are designing social-media interventions in Egypt intended to curb violence against women exacerbated by COVID-19.
