TEDxSoleburySchool Talk: Surviving Disaster in a Box
When natural disasters occur, women are 14% more likely to die than men. This statistic is evident in societies across the world who limit women and narrow their opportunities for success. When a society constructs 如何 women should behave, it makes it difficult for them to reach beyond standards that don’t teach them 如何 to climb trees or swim and leave them exposed to 性ual or physical violence. In a world 在哪里 many women still act as the primary caretakers of children and the elderly, women need to be incorporated into conversations about natural disaster preparation and decision-making. If women are not equipped with the correct safety procedures and tools to keep themselves and others safe, 在哪里 灾难来袭时,他们会转身吗? 如何 他们会保护自己吗 什么 他们会吗??
