Not Just VICTIMS: Women in Emergencies and Disasters

Not Just VICTIMS: Women in Emergencies and Disasters is a clearly written and accessible guide to how women are affected by – and can be a valuable resource in dealing with – disaster. Based on the work of Dr. Elaine Enarson, this latest publication by Women and Health Care Reform looks at why we need to think about women in emergencies and disasters, what kind of work women and girls can do in these situations, and finally, how can disaster management be more responsive to women.

This 12-page booklet is a valuable resource for all those who are involved with disaster and emergency planning and relief work. It would also be helpful for anyone who wants to learn more about how the everyday lives of women are shaped by gender differences and by inequalities at every stage of the disaster planning cycle.
