Economic Justice & Climate Action

AMwA has set in motion new streams of work in Women’s Economic Justice and Climate Action, aimed at illuminating the precarious and yet often ignored connections between the climate crisis and economic and gender justice. The current neoliberal economic models perpetuate gender inequalities and unequal distribution of wealth. We desire the creation of alternative gender-responsive models that work for women by promoting decent work, access to productive resources, the redistribution of unpaid care work, social protection, and fair taxation policies. Similarly, the gendered impacts of climate change require approaches that address the climate crisis as a complex social justice problem and tackle the root causes and impacts of the climate crisis. Our interventions will therefore focus on amplifying women’s voices and strengthening individual and collective capacities for the advancement of economic and climate justice.
