Why Feminism and Climate Justice?

Climate change is an intergenerational, gender and social injustice. It disproportionately impacts the most marginalised – many of whom rely on natural resources for their livelihoods and food – whilst having the fewest resources to respond to natural disasters and a changing climate. Women and children make up the majority of these populations, and yet are often left out of climate-related policy-making and planning. When policies are implemented without diverse women's meaningful participation, it can increase existing inequalities and decrease effectiveness of climate initiatives. It is the goal the Women’s Climate Justice Collective and One Woman Project to raise awareness of this important link between intersectional feminism and climate justice, and to support work that amplifies the voices of the most marginalised to lead on action for climate justice.
