Key to Solving Climate Change is Educating More Women

According to an analysis by the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication, there’s a gender gap between women and men’s education on the topic of climate change in the U.S. Women disproportionately support initiatives to address climate change and environmental protection, but they’re also less educated on the causes of climate change.  Women are more affected by climate change in general—over 80 percent of the people displaced by climate change are women, air pollution is a major threat to pregnant women’s health, and women are more vulnerable to environmental disasters due to less socioeconomic power in general. The analysis states, “Improving the education of women and girls represents one of the top solutions (#6) to reducing greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming.”
