Did you know that climate change disproportionately affects women? Due to the international wage gap, women are less able to recover financially after climate related disasters. For example, according to @nrdc_org, it’s estimated that two-thirds of jobs lost after Hurricane Katrina belonged to women. Following natural disasters like hurricanes, many available jobs are in traditionally male-dominated fields like rebuilding efforts and construction. Climate change also poses a specific threat to pregnant people. According to health professionals from the @climaterealityproject, “adverse pregnancy outcomes, specifically premature birth and low birth weight, […] as well as stillbirth, have been associated with increasing heat and air pollution.” To learn more about the impacts of climate change on women, click the link in our bio.
