Follow Greta and listen to women in fight against climate change

Poor and marginalized women are most affected by it but least heard

| Pacific Islands

When young climate activist Greta Thunberg rose to prominence in 2018, having set off the largest climate protests ever seen, she also highlighted the gendered nature of climate change.

After all, when climate disaster strikes, as it does with increasing frequency, it is the world's most vulnerable people who are most heavily affected. Globally, women and children wield less socioeconomic power and are more likely to experience poverty than men, which often translates to disproportionate risk and burden placed on women and children in times of climate crisis.
