Parliament Square, 2 pm, 8th March
Join Women’s Climate Action at Parliament Square, London, on International Women’s Day – 8th March 2022 – for a Women’s Day of Climate Action because the climate crisis is a feminist/womanist issue.
Women carry the weight of the climate crisis and the burden of waiting for the world to act. Women in most affected regions of the world are already suffering from human caused climate change. Women in every part of the world will disproportionately suffer in a world of mass suffering and extinction. Patriarchy, sexism, and misogyny seem to increase when society is in a state of stress or collapse – we have seen this during the COVID-19 pandemic, with the rise of domestic violence, and we see it in situations of war and other crises.
We owe it to women currently more affected than us, and we owe it to our future selves, our granddaughters and great-granddaughters to press for climate action.
Please be creative! Bring props and banners, music, songs, and games. Bring food to share. We want this event to be welcoming to all women.
