Canadian Women’s Health Network and Prairie Women’s Health Centre of Excellence welcome Dr. Elaine Enarson, a disaster sociologist and a founding member of Gender and Disaster Network Canada. Enarson’s personal experience in Hurricane Andrew sparked extensive work on disaster vulnerability and resilience. She writes widely on the role of gender in disasters, from the way that women and men experience the effects of an emergency and its aftermath differently, to the ways that women’s skills are used (or not used) in the rebuilding process.

For those interested in learning more about gender and disaster, a list of additional resources compiled by Dr. Enarson will be available here. Check back soon!
