    Here’s a perverse truth: from New Orleans to Bangladesh, women–especially poor women of colour–are suffering most from a crisis they have done nothing to cause. Yet where, in environmental policy, are the voices of elderly European women dying in heatwaves? Of African girls dropping out of school due to drought? Our highest-profile climate activists are women and girls; but, at the top table, it’s men deciding the earth’s future. We’re not all in it together–but we could be.

    Instead of expecting individual women to save the planet, what we need are visionary, global climate policies that are gender-inclusive and promote gender equality. Anne Karpf shines a light on the radical ideas, compelling research and tireless campaigns, led by and for women around the world, that have inspired her to hope. Her conversations with female activists show how we can fight back, with strength in diversity.

    And, faced with the most urgent catastrophe of our times, she offers a powerful vision: a Green New Deal for Women.
