Why Women Will Save the Planet

March 9, 2018


The Margaret Pyke Trust’s Carina Hirsch has co-authored a book with 26 other leading global women. Big cities don’t have to mean a dystopian future. They can be turned around to be powerhouses of well-being and environmental sustainability – if we empower women.

The book is a unique collaboration between C40 and Population & Sustainability Network member, Friends of the Earth. The book showcases pioneering city mayors, key voices in the environmental and feminist movements, and academics. Each chapter demonstrates both the need for women’s empowerment for climate action and the powerful change it can bring. It’s a rallying call for the planet, for women and for everyone. No need to start at the beginning of the book though, head straight to chapter 23 “Family planning: a win-win for women and sustainability”!
