Economic Security 4 Women and the National Rural Women’s Coalition are holding a forum on a gendered approach to disaster relieve.
“We know that women do the greater amount of unpaid care work in the family as well as in the community, and that this increases during and after a disaster. We also know that this crowds out the time women have available for paid work. This is during a time when families in particular need extra cash, when the local economies need their workers and when women could be increasingly engaged in rebuilding and post disaster projects . ”
So if this is of interest to you come to the forum being held on October 23 at Woodlands of Marburg, 174 Seminary Road, Marburg Queensland.
