Pulitzer Center Update April 21, 2021

Beyond “Mother Earth” — Gender and the Environment


Women are often the most adversely impacted by climate change and environmental degradation. But they are also the ones who demonstrate strength and leadership against the great challenges we face. Explore the intersection of gender and the environment—how climate change pushes girls into early marriage, what forces women to migrate, and the inspiring stories of Indigenous women who protect the forest from miners and loggers.
