Second Edition of ‘The Evidence’ Examines Women and Climate Change

March 29, 2024 440

The second issue of The Evidence explores the intersection of gender inequality and the global climate crisis. Author Josephine Lethbridge recounts the story of Meenaben Khokhar from Gujarat, India to shed light on how women are disproportionately affected by climate-related disasters. Khokhar and other rural women like her face income reductions of up to 34 percent greater than their male counterparts arising from climate shocks and related incidents. This earning disparity widens with the increased caretaking responsibilities women face during times of distress, limited job opportunities, and restrictions to land ownership. 

This issue highlights the importance of abolishing patriarchal norms and the merits of increasing the involvement of women in conversations on climate change. Women-led initiatives such as Gujarat’s Bhungroo technology and Guatemalan mealworm farms demonstrate how the effects of climate change might be mitigated and empower females. We invite readers to explore the issue and subscribe for ongoing insights and updates here

Too Many ‘Gray Areas’ In Workplace Culture Fosters Racism And Discrimination

The new president of the American Sociological Association spent more than 10 years interviewing over 200 Black workers in a variety of roles – from the gig economy to the C-suite.
