This article is about how women are greatly affected by climate change. 

 

Women make up a large segment of the workforce, especially in developing countries. Climate change alters the environment, and women who eke out a living farming face even more challenges besides running a house, raising children, and facing descrimination for their gender.

Women involved in business in developing countries can give accurate testimonies to the effects of climate change. That's why gender equality and solving climate change go hand-in-hand.
