In Turkey, Women are Feeling the Worst Aftershocks of the Earthquake Disaster

From the Conversation: In Turkey, women are feeling the worst aftershocks of the earthquake disaster – this disparity may lead to dwindling trust in government,

“When natural disasters strike, women and girls tend to experience disproportionate challenges and heightened risks.

They are much more likely than men to experience sexual violence and health problems. Women and girls also face greater professional and educational setbacks.

So it should come as no surprise that challenges continue to mount for women in Turkey and Syria following a 7.8 magnitude earthquake on Feb. 6, 2023, that killed more than 50,000 people and displaced 3 million people.”

  1. Claire, you always come up with such interesting and useful items. This complements a similar article I have from Japan. Will refer to both in an upcoming online lecture.

    Thanks, and Happy Sunday,
