All Hail

COVID-19 is not the world’s ‘great leveller’ | All Hail

Join Ali Rae in this first episode of ‘All Hail The Lockdown‘ – a 5 part series exploring the complexities of our global response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In episode 4, Ali speaks with Indian activists Arundhati Roy and Bezwada Wilson about how “the world’s biggest lockdown” on the subcontinent was made much worse because of pre-existing inequalities.

Ali also speaks with social epidemiologist Manuel Franco and feminist historian Josefina Martinez in Spain to explore the ways geographic and gender inequity impacted the coronavirus pandemic.
