She Bounces Back: Stories of COVID-19 resilience and recovery from China’s women

UN Women and the Rockcheck Puji Foundation are committed to upholding women’s rights and their leadership potential in pandemic preparedness, response and recovery. In May 2020 UN Women China, funded by the Rockcheck Puji Foundation, launched Supporting women to recover from the socio-economic impacts of COVID-19, a project that focused on women entrepreneurs, workers and women-owned small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). In doing so we have worked with many women to build their resilience to future shocks, promote their leadership, and build on their capabilities.

Under this project, we present the She Bounces Back photobook to celebrate and document the tremendous contribution of China’s women, and reinforce the importance of a more equal future as we emerge from the shadow of COVID-19.
