Blog Action Day: Climate Change

Today is Blog Action Day! This year's topic is climate change, so we decided we'd take a look at why climate change is a feminist issue. Obviously climate change affects everyone, but we thought it was important to look at how it affects women and how we as women can help avoid making it worse. So we have compiled some of our favorite links, articles, etc. on the subject:

  • Oxfam's Sisters on the Planet - A series of short films on how climate change is already having a disproportionate impact on people in developing countries and is hitting women hardest.

  • Climate Change is a feminist issue within India by Dr DK Giri and Patrick Koohafkan - Addresses how the fact that Indian women living in traditional communities are frequently pressured to into reproduction is both a women's rights issue and an environmental issue.

  • Women and Global Warming by Elizabeth Switaj - Global warming not only disproportionately affects women, but the same pollutants that cause global warming harm women before they reach the atmosphere.
