Launching – Women Speak: Stories, Case Studies And Solutions

On November 1, 2017 and throughout the month – join us in celebrating the launch of ‘Women Speak: Stories, Case Studies And Solutions From The Frontlines Of Climate Change’!

‘Women Speak: Stories, Case Studies And Solutions From The Frontlines Of Climate Change’ is a web-based research database and initiative designed to shift the narrative and challenge dominant systems of exploitation and oppression of women and the Earth, as we collect and share stories by and about women leading struggles and solutions for climate justice under a variety of cross-sectional themes. The goal is to create an accessible and ever-growing source of information, research and multimedia storytelling for frontline Earth defenders, policymakers, journalists, activists, educators, students, and all those seeking to understand and demonstrate why and how women are paramount to just action on climate change, and the defense and protection of the web of life itself.

‘Women Speak’ is an initiative of the Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network (WECAN) International – with the solidarity and input of many global allies, and an incredible team of research volunteers.
