Gender and Disaster Network


Gender and Disaster Network

The Gender and Disaster Network is an educational project initiated by women and men interested in gender relations in disaster contexts. While understanding that communication technology is not fully accessible and that people interested in this issue work in many languages and contexts, this group hopes to use the Internet to support a global network of researchers and practitioners. Broadly stated, the network's goals are to study women's and men's behaviour and experience before, during, and after disasters, while considering gender relations in broad political, economic, historical, and cultural contexts, and to share this information among network members. This Web site currently includes a list of members with short statements of each one's interests, papers, bibliographies, and other material outlining gender issues related to disasters. The Gender and Disaster Network is open to anyone concerned about such issues.
