Blaming women for shifting climate change in Kashmir...

I came across an article that surprised me to the core. Climate change is a cause for concern everywhere in the world, but have you heard a certain gender group being blamed for it?
You heard it right! Kashmir has been facing a lack of snowfall lately, thus leading to shortage of water. So in order to collect water from further afield, women have to walk the extra mile. Yes, that's true! In majority of the villages in India, it falls on the women to collect water from the central well or groundwater source in their villages. So if there in no water available nearby, it is the women who have to travel as far as needed (possibly miles), to gather water for their daily use (usually on foot). This task comes in the way of those women who have jobs or are pursuing education.

Coming back to our cause for concern. Sky Trust Kashmir has pointed out the fact that women are being blamed for a shift in climate change. Why? Well, the reason itself is strange enough. The people in the region believe that these 'modern' thinking women who get strange ideas in their head to study and have a career, are the reason behind the shortage of snowfall.

      Why blame women for climate change when they are one who suffers the most

        This is outrageous! Blaming women for climate change is not only wrong, it's completely backwards! Let's spread awareness about climate change and challenge these harmful beliefs. ✊

          We are not in the medivial times!! Women now have the right to get education and contribute to the society. Blaming women for climate change is barbaric.

            Women are the most liable to climate: how comes they course suffering to themselves how? They are undefeated when it comes to climate conservations.

              This is just absurd. Last I checked, women are the most vulnerable to climate change and can not therefore be the cause of their own suffering. They are infact champions of climate action.
