This chapter, ‘Gender and Disaster Resilience’, calls for a more holistic approach to disasters. Particularly one that recognises the differences within disaster vulnerability which gender and disaster scholars have identified throughout their work. The chapter also focuses on the introduction of Gender and Disaster into disaster-related academia, known as the ‘Three Waves of Gender and Disaster Scholarship’. This section covers the ‘First Wave: 1980s’, the ‘Second Wave: 1990s’, and the ‘Third Wave: 2000s-Present’.
