Abstract

The earthquake in Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara, in August 2018 not only damaged the environment and the area around the epicenter but also shook public order. The shaking of economic and social infrastructure is being paid for by unpreparedness in facing disasters, and this is compounded by the mental deterioration of the community due to the loss of family members. This study aims to describe women's abilities during the aftermath of the disaster, and their efforts to overcome economic and social problems within their families. We also observed women's collective efforts as a way to eliminate trauma (trauma healing). This study employed a qualitative approach by interviewing eight housewives with direct experience in dealing with natural disasters. The study was conducted in four sub-districts: Gangga, Tanjung, Gondang, and Pemenang, North Lombok Regency. Data collected by observation and in-depth interviews. The theory used in this study is about the role of women who tend to be more caring and able to provide care to their environment, both in the family and community, and women’s awareness to build collective action in overcoming shared problems. The results of this study showed that women 's resilience in facing disasters has been tested, supported by their ability to help each other and care for their families and the environment. In addition, women's involvement in joint business activities before the earthquake helped to restore the social, economic and psychological conditions experienced by women and their families due to the earthquake. The study also found that the involvement of women in a joint business activity that took place before the earthquake was able to be a rescue valve to restore the social, economic and psychological conditions experienced by women and their families due to the earthquake. Activities undertaken by women in their collectivity can be a way of healing trauma, which is useful for women's resilience in the face of disasters, and also for families and society and for families and society as a whole because the rise of the joint business group will economically resonate with the environment, which is still in a collapsed and uncertain condition.
