GENDER AND
RADIATION
IMPACT Project

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
– Margaret Mead

We know both the benefit and the harm of radiation; we learned about the potential for harm as children.

Now, we have the chance to invest in a project whose goal is to keep our grandchildren from experiencing harm from radiation. This opportunity is rooted in a new understanding that a silent siren has been going off for 75 years. It is urgent that now we can hear it, we act. Now.

The Gender and Radiation Impact Project works at the intersection of public health, medicine and public policy. We are an educational and funding group that brings together top thinkers to understand the role biological gender plays in harm from radiation.

The truth is, while we don’t know why girls and women are impacted more by radiation, we do know they are. In fact, we know the harm to girls and women is, overall, roughly twice that of boys and men. Current regulations are based on data from adult men, with bodies ten times less likely to get cancer than if little girls are exposed. As research continues, we have a generation of children, girls especially, who need greater protection. Our goal is an overall reduction in harm, better protection and better choices for preventing unintended exposure to radiation – for everyone, but especially for our children’s children.

“These findings, and the studies behind them, are of a truly revolutionary nature. They give a whole new dimension to the 70-year old problem of nuclear weapons.”
– Ambassador Henrik Salandar, Sweden
