Climate Change: What’s Gender Got to Do with It?
Feb 26 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

Climate Change: What’s Gender Got to Do with It?

 ~ How Women will Lead us to a More Sustainable Future ~

Prescott, AZ –

Northern AZ Climate Change Alliance (NAZCCA) and the Democratic Women of the Prescott Area will feature a presentation and discussion by Dr. Frances Julia Riemer that explores the many issues of social justice and inequity in a changing climate. You are invited to listen and join in the discussion of Climate Change: What’s Gender Got to Do with It? How Women will Lead Us to a More Sustainable Future on Wednesday, February 26th, 11:00am – 2:00pm at Centennial Center, 1989 Clubhouse Drive,  Prescott AZ. The presentation will include a buffet lunch and an opportunity for Q & A. You can purchase tickets online at: dwpaaz.org/new-events 

(Luncheon Cost: $17 for DWPA Members, $20 for Non-members. Gluten-free and vegetarian options available. Please reserve by Friday, Feb 21.)

We will examine the higher risks and greater burdens on women from the impacts of climate change, and discuss the ways in which unequal participation in decision-making processes and labor markets compound these effects, and prevent women from fully contributing to climate-related planning, policy-making, and implementation. We also discuss the critical roles played by women in response to climate change. Across the globe, women’s knowledge of sustainable practices at the household and community levels and women’s participation at the political level has resulted in a greater focus and responsiveness to community needs and climate-related programs and policies.

Dr. Frances Julia Riemer is Professor of Educational Foundations and Associate Faculty/former Director of Women’s and Gender Studies Program at Northern Arizona University. An educational anthropologist who has conducted ethnographic research in the US, Africa, and Latin America; she focuses on change and issues of equity and access, gender, development and sustainable communities, as well as cultural differences and social organizations of community, school, and workplace.

Dr. Riemer is also a member of the NAZCCA Board of Directors.
