As we approach International Women’s Day on March 8th, WEDO shares this MUST READ on how young feminists are building collaborative action & analysis to combat climate change– working to shed light on our interlinked systemic crises.

“From a climate justice perspective, addressing the root causes of the climate crisis also requires tackling social inequalities and eradicating forms of oppression that movements can also reproduce, including gender inequalities. This includes honoring the fact that the frontlines inhabited by women around the world are not just lines of crisis, but also frontlines of change.”

WEDO also takes this moment to honor those powerful voices & activists who fight with their lives on the line each and everyday- for their communities and planet. In particular, we honor the tireless and courageous indigenous environmental activist, Berta Cáceres, who was killed last week. Allies around the world feel the pain of this injustice, and are working to take urgent action in their communities and cities. Find out more here and stay tuned for updates on activities to honor Berta Cáceres, and her legacy for climate justice, during the upcoming CSW60 in New York.
