What about the Women? The Role of Women in Post-Quake Haiti
Women played a vital role in Haiti in the aftermath of the devastating 2010 earthquake. In leveled communities and overcrowded tent cities, Haitian women worked to treat the wounded, reunite families, and support survivors. Just over two years later, they remain a critical factor in Haiti's recovery, but face considerable hardship. Gender-based violence, disease, pregnancy-related mortality, extreme poverty, and unemployment remain high. Meanwhile, women frequently do not have a key voice in the reconstruction process.
The World Affairs Council presents Anne-christine d'Adesky journalist, author, documentary filmmaker, and gender and human rights activist for a discussion on the role of women in Haiti. She will discuss problems related to sexual violence, HIV/AIDS, and her work to empower women to create change in their communities.
