    CLIMATE CHANGE CHALLENGES TO WORLD'S WOMEN RIDICULED BY RIGHT WING

    Right-Wing Media Laugh Off How Climate Change Harms Women; Rep. Barbara Lee's Resolution Speaks To Climate Change's Gender Disparities

    Denise Robbins, April 1, 2015 (Media Matters)

    “Right-wing media have been mocking a recent resolution to address the disproportionate impacts that women will face from climate change, laughing at the possibility that ‘climate change will turn women into prostitutes.’ But the grim reality is that climate change will affect women in ways that should not be laughed at or ignored…Rep.

As food, fuel and water become scarce, women have to walk farther to collect them. Long treks often put women at a greater risk of violence. All of this in regions where women are also the health care providers and caregivers in their families. Several other international think tanks have detailed how the impacts of climate change will disproportionately affect women across the globe…” click here for more
