Women are often the most adversely impacted by climate change and environmental degradation. But they are also the ones who demonstrate strength and leadership against the great challenges we face. Explore the intersection of gender and the environment—how climate change pushes girls into early marriage, what forces women to migrate, and the inspiring stories of Indigenous women who protect the forest from miners and loggers.
Speakers include: Neha D. Wadekar, Nádia Pontes, Nichole Sobecki, and Sara Shipley Hiles.
This session is part of the 2021 Pulitzer Center Conference.
