Feminist Decolonial Global Green New Deal

We call upon feminists to join the cause for climate justice and for the climate movement to consider the disproportionate and differentiated impact climate change is already placing on women globally, particularly women of color and those in underrepresented communities. No one should fear for their reproductive health and personal safety in the face of the climate crisis and rampant pollution because of their identity, particularly when these environmental issues are ones they have not created.

 

The feminist Green New Deal coalition put together insightful resources to better understand the climate crisis that has emerged from interlocking systems of capitalism, resource extraction, labor exploitation, the commodification of nature, settler colonialism, imperialism, and militarism, as well as the roots in the exploitation of enslaved people.
