This symposium presents scholarship examining the intersection of climate change and gender-based disparities. The selected scholarship considers the impact of climate change on child marriage, public health, economic mobility, and domestic abuse. By shining a light on the ways in which climate climate change exacerbates inequality, this symposium supports a proactive, inclusive approach to climate change and gender justice.
