Society becomes resilient and sustainable when women lead

New Delhi: Limited mobility and the socially assigned roles of women have rendered them more vulnerable than men in disasters. However, at the same time it’s seen that given a chance, women’s intimate “front-line” knowledge of their local environment gives them an enormous capacity to be leaders in relief and rehabilitation but also become transformational agents in community disaster planning and preparedness, and to play a significant role in bolstering resilience.
