Impact of Joshimath’s sinking on local women: A case study based on interviews with women of Joshimath


Author(s): Devender Singh and Shailja

Abstract: Joshimath is located at over 6,000 feet in Chamoli district, in the Garhwal Himalayas. The heavy rains in October 2021, the people of Cantonment market were scared when they saw cracks in their houses. The cracks widened further during the rainy season this year. In this recent Joshimath tragedy, as well as many similar disasters, it has become increasingly apparent that women and children are often the most severely affected in such situations. After the study on the adverse effects on women after the disaster, attention has been started on the problems and challenges related to the disaster effect of women. The purpose of this paper is to analyse Joshimath sinking in terms of effects using a gender approach and propose new metrics that reflect women's disadvantageous position in crisis situations. Exploratory research methodology was used in the study. The researcher interviewed 25 local women of Joshimath for the research paper, out of which mainly 10 women's interviews have been written in the research paper. The discussion with Joshimath women will centre on the gender dimensions of the Joshimath disaster experience.
