The detailed case studies from three earthquake-stricken areas in India and Turkey provide examples of how low-income women who have lost everything can form groups and become active participants in the relief and recovery process. The article also examines the roles that NGOs and government policy and procedures play in facilitating (or impeding) women’s involvement.
