From October 28 to November 6, 2016, women and girls for climate justice rose up around the world to show our resistance to environmental and social degradation; highlight the climate impacts our communities are facing; demand drastic change away from our unjust neoliberal economic and development systems; and demonstrate the many effective, just and safe climate solutions, strategies and political calls that are being implemented by women and girls around the world on a daily basis.
‘Women Act for Climate Justice: Ten Days of Global Mobilization’, co-sponsored by the Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network and Women’s Global Call for Climate Justice , was a worldwide call for women and girls to bring light to their climate struggles and solutions by sending in photos and statements; or through escalated local actions including but not limited to educational events, community projects, protests and marches.
The 2016 ‘Women Act for Climate Justice’ campaign was called in advance of the November 2016 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) - COP22 Conference in Marrakech, Morocco, as part of efforts to ensure a sustained civil society presence and stand strong to demand that all government’s road maps ahead to originate in a climate justice framework, and with respect to human, Indigenous and women’s rights, and gender, social, economic and ecological justice. The 'Women Act for Climate Justice’ decentralized mobilization shows the collective actions and voices of global women for climate justice and solutions in the lead up to, during and far beyond the UNFCCC.
