When the disaster strikes: Gendered (im)mobility in Bangladesh

Source(s):  Climate Risk Management (Elsevier)

This study investigates gendered (im)mobility during cyclone strikes in Bangladesh. During such strikes people have described being unable to move away from environmentally high-risk locations and situations. The Q-based Discourse Analysis used by this study shows how and why gender-roles (im)mobilised people in three coastal locations during the cyclones.

Masculine roles were expected to be brave and protective, while female ‘mobility’ could be risky. Women’s mobility, therefore, ended up being constrained to the home. In other words, when disaster strikes, everyone did not have the same ability to move. These empirical insights are important to inform climate policy in a way that it better supports vulnerable populations worldwide as they confront global environmental changes today and in the future.
