Really Inconvenient Truths: Gender, Climate Change, and Environmental Security

Joni Seager

September 16, 2010

UMass Boston

Joni Seager maps out feminist approaches to climate change. She believes it is critically important for feminists to engage with climate change because it is one of the largest frameworks for understanding what is going on in the world today -- however, relatively few feminists do. Conversely, it is critically important for people who work on climate change to engage with feminist analysis, but that conversation doesn't happen much. In the first part of Seager’s talk, she makes an argument about a particular framework that has come to dominate policy discourse on climate change; she then steps back to map a larger framework for feminist analysis.
