IIn our season finale we end with the one who started it. Ayesha Constable, founder of GirlsCARE, Young People for Climate Action and our partner in this climate justice series tackles issues of gender justice. In this hard hitting two-part series, we peel back the layers and intersectionalities between climate change and gender. Ayesha provides scholarly and cultural insights into the barriers for gender justice for Caribbean women, the power dynamics in relation to climate leadership and decision making. There is a rising wave of women in the Caribbean climate space, yet the decisions are docked in the male domain. Using her regional and international experience, the scholar activist, feminist and gender expert shares needed approaches to drive transformative change and greater empowerment for Caribbean women and girls.
