Why Women and Girls’ Rights 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 women and children’s meaningful participation, it can increase existing inequalities and decrease effectiveness of climate initiatives. It is the goal of Plan International and the Women’s Climate Justice Collective to raise awareness of this important link between women’s rights and climate justice, and to support work that amplifies the voices of the most vulnerable to lead on action for climate justice.

About the Organisers:

The Women’s Climate Justice Collective aims to mainstream feminist climate justice, support women in the women’s rights and climate justice movements, and encourage the women’s rights and climate justice movements to connect on common goals.

Plan International Australia is the charity for girls’ equality. They work to tackle the root causes of poverty, support communities through crisis, campaign for gender equality, and help governments do what’s right for children – particularly for girls. By supporting and amplifying girls’ voices, Plan International Australia aim to strengthen girls’ participation in climate decisions and actions.
