    The portrait presented in this fact sheet is the result of extensive and non-exhaustive research conducted between March 23 and May 17, 2020. Two independent Internet searches were conducted to gather all available information related to gambling, online gambling and the COVID-19 pandemic. Since few studies have been published to date on gambling and the specific context of the health crisis, the information collected is limited to material that is accessible and available on the web at the time of data collection

    Violence Against Women Is and Was its Own Pandemic_COVID-19 Made Things Worse

    Get PDF
    Very early in the COVID-19 pandemic, I wrote two pieces (here and here) outlining that, as with other global crises, a new pandemic would mean frightening increases in the frequency and severity of violence at home: women would be confined, due to lockdowns, with their abusers, with little or no opportunity to seek help, and the compounding stressors of the pandemic (employment uncertainty, fear of becoming ill, kids at home all the time, etc.) would create a perfect storm for escalating violence. Sadly, this has proven largely true, with, for example, rates of femicide (the intentional killing of women because they’re women) increasing in Canada in line with the pandemic, along with the need for services

    When Women are Equal: The Canada Research Chair Experience

    Get PDF
    This paper focuses on the gendered nature of elite academic careers. Of interest is how similar or diff erent the experiences are of women and men who have been appointed to Canada Research Chairs (CRCs). In particular, we examine the impacts of holding a CRC position and consider the factors that shape that experience for women and men. Based on interviews with 60 CRCs, we find that when women and men are given similar opportunities, their experiences are more alike than diff erent. Where diff erences arise, these are often related to the experience of status/prestige associated with the CRC, and to family care responsibilities. Using expectation states theory, we demonstrate that when women are equal to men, the significance of gender as a determinant of the academic experience is diminished
