New Report Highlights Women's Vulnerability in Natural Disasters

These disasters occurred in vastly different places—from the tsunami in Asia to Hurricane Stan in Guatemala to the massive earthquake in Kashmir and Hurricane Katrina in the United States. Yet, they share one factor in common: during and afterwards, women and children suffered most.
