Abstract

Since 1990s, the magnitude and frequency of mega disasters around the globe are on the rapid rise. The destructive impact of natural disasters is vast. They not only destroy personal life, health and wellbeing but also devastates livelihoods, social services and environments. Disasters are also
gender discriminatory. Due to their biological/physiological characteristics and unequal status in social, economic and political life, women's vulnerability increases when disaster occurs. Despite such destructiveness however, disasters sometimes act as an opportunity for change towards a more gender-equal society. The demise of existing infrastructure and influx of external resources may create a positive opportunity for a change. Against this backdrop, this study examines whether fundamental changes toward gender equality can take place during the reconstruction phase of a disaster in developing countries, and also examines implications for the disaster management policy of South Korea.
