We are thrilled to share with you the Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network (WECAN) launch of Women Speak: Stories, Case Studies And Solutions From The Frontlines Of Climate Change. This WECAN project is a web-based research database and initiative is collecting and sharing stories by and about women from around the world; women who are leading struggles and solutions for climate justice under a variety of cross-sectional themes.
The goal of this innovative Women Speak is to create an accessible and ever-growing source of information, research and multimedia storytelling for frontline Earth defenders, policymakers, journalists, activists, educators, students, and all those seeking to understand and demonstrate why and how women are paramount to just action on climate change, and the defense and protection of the web of life itself.
WECAN, helps us understand that “worldwide, when women are empowered, there are immense benefits to entire communities and societies overall. Sustainable and local economies grow , populations stabilize, and children’s health and education improve – all of which are foundations for a sustainable path forward. In many countries, women get out the vote and vote more often, and lead on environmental and social legislation when elected to public office. It has additionally been shown that women are one of the most vital actors in peace-making.”
