Save the date – 8th March 2020
Join Wen on International Women’s Day – Sunday 8th March 2020 to raise your voice for gender and climate justice.
We are asking members and supporters to join us at the rally. We are calling for urgent action on the climate and gender inequality crisis, as we know that there can’t be climate justice without gender justice.
Women are on the front lines in the battle against the climate crisis and have crucial insights into how climate change should be tackled.. Yet, they are not equally involved in decision making and solutions to address the climate crisis. The burden of the climate crisis falls hardest on women and girls, especially poorer women and women of colour. They are the ones picking up the pieces after extreme weather, floods, droughts and storms. They are the ones facing an unequal burden taking care of children, the sick and the elderly in climate emergencies. They are the ones resisting the fossil fuel industry and challenging petrochemical masculinities that are the cause and driver of the climate crisis.
Who is this rally and march for?
It’s for anyone and everyone who wants to see a more equal world. Everyone is welcome.
Where will the rally take place?
The event will start in Southbank, central London, with a circular rally down to Westminster and back.
What are we calling for?
We are going to call for an urgent, immediate, and concrete action for climate justice and gender justice by governments around the world – including the new UK government.
