This piece argues that emergency planners, government relief agencies and community-based organizations would benefit from applying a gender-based analysis to their work. The authors state that by understanding the particular ways that women are likely to be affected by a disaster or an emergency and the contributions that women typically make to coping with and recovering from such events, we can ensure that our communities are better prepared to manage should the worst happen.
