S2E12 - Gender

Today we are talking to Sarah Brown, Alison Sneddon and Mirianna Budimir from Practical Action about their work on gender and disasters. Why is it problematic when women and girls are treated as generically vulnerable? How can a binary narrative of gender be dangerous and create further marginalization? These and other questions are explored through the lens of intersectionality and story-telling.
