The UN reports that 80% of people displaced by climate change are women. This means women and girls are experiencing a disportionate amount of the consequences of climate change already through natural disasters, food shortages, and scarce resources. The panelists will delve into how environmental justice intersects with the fight for gender equity. We will discuss how climate change affects women and girl’s access to education, healthcare, and the resources they need to succeed. Additionally, we will talk about how women and girls are taking a stand and fighting for a better environment and for their rights.
