In this event, we are inviting speakers and scholars from various disciplines, profession, and communities who have transnational research expertise on feminist work in a disaster, community work experience on disasters like pandemics. December 2020 will mark a year of Covid-19 pandemic which has challenged human civilization in a way we have never seen before.  In this regard, the gender perspective on COVID-19 is a matter that is often ignored specially because women are considered vulnerable and not able to manage a disaster. In this regard, this event will create a space for scholars and practitioners to share with the Virginia Tech community: 

a. The impacts of COVID-19 on women globally

b. Women’s Disaster Management as well as coping, managing, and resisting strategies

c.  How feminist perspective will be helpful in managing the disaster?

This event will feature speakers from Nepal, Nigeria, and Puerto Rico. This global discussion and interaction will be very beneficial as we all move through and are coping with the aftereffects of Covid-19 in our own ways. This event will create an opportunity for all of us to understand the leadership aspects of women globally in order to cope with the virus.

Questions should be directed towards Dr. Sweta Baniya (baniya@vt.edu)
