Hope To Action
Women and children suffer most from global warming. We comprise 70 percent of the global poor. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), "the impacts of climate change fall disproportionately upon developing countries and the global poor, exacerbating inequities in health status and access to adequate food, water, and other resources."
Women deserve a stronger political voice. We deserve more decision-making authority on climate issues. Historically, men have dominated climate-related policy making, domestically and around the world. It's time to restore gender balance to decisions that reflect one of the greatest issues of our time, especially since women and children will be impacted most by those decisions.
We are our children's advocates. Women want the best for our children's futures. Whether we're mothers or not, the desire and commitment to protect our children's futures connects us to each other and resonates deeply for women of all backgrounds and faiths.
