Women and Children First — Why Climate Change is a Feminist Issue

Powerhouse Theatre

Wherever you live in the Commonwealth — sub-Saharan Africa, the delta in Bangladesh, the coral atolls of the Pacific or regional Australia — climate change is making itself felt in communities, and especially in the lives of women and children. But women are also at the forefront of responses around the world. These amazing women will bring a gender lens to climate change and its impacts, to suggest how this can be changed. Speakers will include from Fiji Sharon Bhagwan Rolls founder of femLINKpacific, Mayor Vonda Malone of the Torres Shire Council and from Griffith University Research Scientist Esther Onyango.  Facilitated by former Australia Greens Deputy Leader and Queensland Senator Larissa Waters.
