Need to look at all perspectives

Shayal Devi
Wednesday, June 11, 2014

WOMEN often find it difficult to think about economic, social and environmental issues if they are being abused or discriminated against, says Development Alternatives with Women for a New Era project co-ordinator Noelene Nabulivou.

"Even at a very basic level, we have to think how we can claim our rights in other areas if our bodies are not safe," she said.

"So people have to remember that any time you do climate change work, it has to be gendered as different people have different experiences. A young woman's experience can be different than that of an older female. So we have to look from every perspective.

"Gender is about so much more than women's rights.

"It is looking at the way in which you can have the greatest equitable ownership and experience of your human rights."

She said governments needed to address persistence, equality, extreme poverty and issues such as extractive industries.

The workshop will end on June 13.
