Bangladesh officially declared the huge productivity of crops in recent years. At the same time population lives below the poverty line especially in the northern part of Bangladesh. The food insecurity of Bangladesh and living condition is regionally varied and depends on several factors. The tendency of natural disaster, distribution of agricultural land, access to health facilities, education, and level of infrastructure development, employment opportunities, and dietary practices are some of the significant factors that affect food insecurity and peoples living condition. People of different classes, regions, educational backgrounds, gender experience the effects differently. This paper aims at exploring the challenges of Char Women and their socio-economic circumstances in natural disasters around the year, especially in flood and drought times. The existence of the Teesta barrage and the over extortion of stones from the river bed create the riverside environment worst to live in. This study is conducted in Kisamater Char, Niilphamari. A sample of 25 Char women is collected with a qualitative theoretical and methodological ground. The case study method has been used as a main principal tool. This study reveals that the majority of Char women are unable to maintain family food security in maintaining societal gendered customs
