Did you know that women are 14 times more likely to die during natural disasters than men globally? And 80% of people displaced by climate change are women and girls! Studies have also shown that women are at greater risk of sexual and gender-based violence (including rape, sexual exploitation, and assault) during and after disasters. Climate change exacerbates inequalities, especially existing gender inequalities, often resulting in more negative impacts for women. We call this the gender-climate links, or the gender dimensions to the climate crisis, a global issue that we absolutely wanted to explore in this third episode of The Beam Podcast. 

Guests:

  • Sheila Oparaocha, International Coordinator and Programme Manager at ENERGIA,
  • Katherine Lucey, Founder and CEO of Solar Sister, 
  • Dr Katharine Wilkinson, Vice-President of Communication & Engagement and Lead Writer at Project Drawdown.
