An Ecofeminist Take on the Paris Agreement - Part I

Screen shot 2021 11 07 at 13.53.16

By: Bethany Wilson, Carol Bardi, Rosalie Le Grelle

This piece discusses how ecofeminist theory can help understand nuances and draw insights on the Paris Agreement's dominant narratives. It explores how binary thinking and specific forms of knowledge are presented in the Paris Agreement and how it is, therefore, not possible to see it as a proper vehicle for climate, social, and gender justice.
