Gender and Water Sanitation and Hygiene View Jacket

  • Synopsis
    At birth and death, and each day in between, individual human need for water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) is near constant. While WASH is intensely personal, it is also about power, inequality, development and social justice. Inadequate WASH provision both results from and causes continuing poverty, and serves to reinforce gender and other inequalities. Women and girls experience WASH needs differently from men, both as individuals, and as societies’ carers. Gender and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene highlights the importance of WASH provision for women and girls in their own right, as carers for families and communities, and as key to women’s empowerment.
  • Endorsements
    ‘A great resource for WASH professionals who want to understand both the basics and the nuances of the link between WASH and gender equality. Because it covers a wide range of WASH sector focus areas – from urban to rural contexts, water resources to sanitation access, gender relations connected to WASH work as well as uniquely female experiences of menstruation, child birth and menopause, it is a worthwhile read for all of us working in or wanting to understand the impacts of WASH on gender.’
    Priya Nath, Equality, inclusion and rights advisor, WaterAid
