The climate crisis disproportionately affects women. That’s a fact. Report after report finds that gender plays a significant role in this crisis, with 80% of those displaced being women, and women being 14 times more likely to die during a climate disaster. At the same time, women are also leading the way when it comes to solutions to the climate crisis, yet they are grossly underrepresented in decision-making. How is this possible? What are the forces at play? And how can we change this?
As part of the Feminist Climate Academy, activists and scientists will discuss how the climate crisis is so tightly linked with gender (in)justice, and why women should be in front and at the centre when it comes to making policies and plans for tackling the crisis. Patriarchy and rampant capitalism got us into this mess. Feminism can get us out of it.
