WHY CLIMATE JUSTICE NEEDS GENDER JUSTICE - Info Slides

Women are taking the lead in driving climate solutions. 🌿
It is essential that women have access to equal rights, to education, to resources, to information, to equal pay and much much more.
Highlighting everyone’s role - including men’s - in promoting gender equality and challenging patriarchal structures must also be part of climate action. Climate policy needs to continue to recognise and integrate gender dimensions in order to become more effective.
Women are a smaller part of the problem and a bigger part of the climate solution!
Feel free to share your favourite inspirational people and organisations on the intersection of women’s rights, gender justice and climate justice in the comments! 💫

        Usually we have issues of women not being included in climate decision making but I think that is currently being addressed.

          @munene_mugambi You're right that the topic female representation (in general and in governments) is gaining more and more attention - but still, there remains a significant gap between the number of men and women holding political office in most places. It's crucial to create a more inclusive and equitable political environment, to address climate change and many other crises!

              @rotich_kim 100% - Gender justice plays a major role in so many topics our society is dealing with! It's so important to use an intersectional lens when it comes to understanding powerstructures i all forms and facets.

              This message emphasizes the intersectionality of gender justice and climate justice, highlighting the crucial role women play in driving climate solutions. It underscores the importance of ensuring equal rights, access to resources, education, and opportunities for women to fully participate in climate action. By recognizing and addressing gender dimensions in climate policy, it becomes more effective in tackling climate change. Women are depicted as both a smaller part of the problem and a bigger part of the solution, emphasizing their significant contributions to mitigating climate change.

                  @mary_dosarah And if we hope to build an equitable society, we will promote gender justice.

                    @mary_dosarah very well said! Only through recognizing the intersections of different identity aspects and forms of discrimination, it's possible to dismantle power structures and oppressions! And only then we can achieve a just and equitable future for all 🌿

                    Climate justice and gender justice are interconnected issues, and addressing one must involve addressing the other.
