Happy International Women’s Day!
It’s a great time to remember and celebrate the role of women in contributing to sustainability.
The 1Million Women organisation is a movement of women and girls from every corner of the planet building a lifestyle revolution to fight the climate crisis. You can find out more or join the movement at https://www.1millionwomen.com.au.
Along with mobilising ladies to get involved in climate action, 1MW has a great Facebook profile where they share tips, news, current events, inspiring speeches, and lots of other content related to sustainability: https://www.facebook.com/1MillionWomen/
Here’s a few stories of some amazing gals who’ve done great work for the planet:
- Actress Shailene Woodley is an outspoken advocate for all things environmental – she’s used her public image to campaign for fossil fuel divestment, and protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline. She also buys exclusively second-hand clothing!
- All-around boss lady Dr. Jane Goodall pioneered modern research on chimpanzees, and has engineered her huge public profile to campaign for species conservation.
- Dr. Sylvia Earle is an oceanographer, explorer, author and lecturer, and an instrumental member of the National Geographic Society. Back in the ‘60s, she fought to join male-only expeditions and today her fearless curiosity about the ocean has given us 190 scientific publications.
Be inspired by these women and get sustainable this International Women’s Day!
