Yesterday, for #WomanCrushWednesday, we honored the women on the frontlines of the fight against #COVID19.

While all people are exhibiting brave leadership to protect their families and communities from the coronavirus, women face specific vulnerabilities to the crisis.
Women are much more likely to perform paid and unpaid care work - at home and in medicine, eldercare, childcare and education.
The Sierra Club is joining with allies to call for essential safety net services like paid sick & family leave, childcare for workers, a moratorium on evictions & foreclosures, restoring running water to low income families, & more. #peoplesbailout. 
Thank you to the frontline workers for your commitment to providing a safe and healthy environment for all. Today we celebrate and thank you for your bravery!
