2007 NOMINEES SOUGHT
Deadline: April 15
The Gender and Disaster Network and the Natural Hazards Center invite nominations of those who should be recognized for their efforts to advance gender-sensitive policy, practice, or research in the areas of disaster risk reduction. Established in 2002, the Mary Fran Myers Award recognizes that vulnerability to disasters and mass emergencies is influenced by social, cultural, and economic structures that marginalize women and girls, and may also expose boys and men to harm. The award was so named to recognize Myers’ sustained efforts as Co-Director of the Natural Hazards Center to launch a worldwide network promoting women’s opportunities in disaster-related professions and supporting research on gender issues, disasters, emergency management, and higher education.
Por tercer año consecutivo Ciudad de Mujeres convoca su Exposición virtual “Mujeres vistas por mujeres: una mirada de género” con motivo del Día Internacional de la Mujer.
Cuando iniciamos este proyecto con el objetivo de mostrar, a través de una serie de imágenes fotográficas captadas por las mujeres, la visión que éstas tienen de su género, de su ser y estar mujeres, no pensábamos en que la acogida y el entusiasmo demostrado sería el que ha sido ni que de un año para otro la participación se duplicaría.
