"Women and girls first?': Some reflections on gender and environmental hazards

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The study of environmental hazards and, more specifically, of human vulnerability to natural and human-made calamities shows gender differences among social groups exposed to such phenomena. Two examples of this trend are offered, illustrating the relationships between the workings of the global economy, the increasing presence of women in industrial production and the hazards to which this labour force is exposed during the production process. -English summary
