Women and climate crisis

3 - 5 major points:

The climate emergency disproportionately impacts women and the essential work that we do.

  • Women have lower socioeconomic status and power than men, so disasters leave us worse off.
  • Multiple oppressions multiply the impact.
  • The climate crisis creates societal instability, which increases rape and other violence against women.
  • Women’s intelligence and understanding of the importance of relationships need to be at the center of climate solutions.
  • Sexism, male domination, and artificial divisions between white women and women of color are huge obstacles to ending climate change
