Hell's angels

Every October, countries around the world commemorate the International Day for Disaster Reduction. This year’s theme, ‘Women and Girls: The Invisible Force of Resilience’, is meant to remind us of the strength and value that women and girls like Samitra Devi bring—both in reducing the impact of disasters, for example by preparing their own families and communities, and in disaster recovery. Although their contributions are often overlooked and they experience disproportionate challenges after catastrophic natural disasters, women have a key role in bringing families and communities back to normalcy, and it is time that their potential be better recognized and utilized.
