Bangladesh is very prone to the natural disaster due to its geographical location. This fertile land is situated on Ganges–Brahmaputra delta and irrigated by the Meghna river which made disaster a common phenomenon in the country.
Climate change has a great impact on the lives of the women in Bangladesh. It threatens the gender equality. Gender equality does not mean that men and women are similar rather it means equal value, rights and opportunities should also be for women. Because of social and economic differences, women suffer the most during the natural disaster. According to a study of United Nations Population Fund , the death of women and children is more than men in natural disaster.
There are several reasons of women and children death toll during natural disaster. Women stay back at home for being rescued and they do not know how to swim or climb the tree. They are also ignorant about the safety mechanism during disaster.
