Pre-existing gender inequalities are worse in a disaster!
Girls and women are already more confined to the home and less likely to have access to crucial information or to contribute to disaster planning. Also the more elaborate and heavier clothes they wear, as well as a lack of skill, may prevent them from swimming to safety; these become life-threatening inequalities when you add disaster to the mix.
