To mark International Women’s Day, from the 8th – 11th March the University of Aberdeen is hosting a series of in-person and online events. These include a panel discussion of female voices in the climate change debate, asking if there is space for women to be heard in the discussion, research and debate around the crucial decisions that need to be made.
We thought that this was a good opportunity to showcase a small selection of the books available in the library that dig deeper into women’s roles and involvement in climate change around the world: both from an academic perspective and through examining specific case studies and the work of countries and communities.
Research, Action and Policy: Addressing the Gendered Impacts of Climate Change by Margaret Alston & Kerri Whittenbury (Proceedings of the Gender and Climate Change: Women, Research and Action Conference, available online)
We do hope you enjoy reading and learning from these books. If you have any comments, questions or recommendations, please let us know.
