International Women’s Day – Women’s Climate Strike
March 7 @ 7:00 pm - March 8 @ 7:00 pm
We call on all women (Female, Intersex, Non-Binary, Trans) and allies, from across Scotland, to gather with us outside the Scottish Parliament at Holyrood, for a ’drop-in’ 24-hour vigil and rally for Climate & Nature. Come and stand for the whole vigil OR for just a few minutes – whatever you can manage – in solidarity with women and girls already being impacted by climate chaos around the world.
We will also be holding a rally on the 8th with lots of activities throughout the day. Exact times and details to be announced in due course.
Women are disproportionately impacted by climate change and often least responsible for the emissions driving it. Yet we are woefully under-represented when it comes to high-level discussions on climate action, despite the fact that women have shown great climate leadership when given the opportunity.
Women are carrying the weight of the world’s inaction and yet still we wait for meaningful action to be taken to avert the rapidly unfolding climate and nature crisis. We will wait no longer. We want a seat at the table and we want climate justice now!
