See all formats and editions

From podiums on international stages to mainstream media coverage, from crowds of youth marching in streets, to social media feeds, everywhere we look we can see girls rising in the climate justice movement. Carolyn M. Cunningham and Heather M. Crandall examine these climate activists from the intersection of gender studies, new media studies, and environmental activism. Chapters include cases about iconic climate girls such as Greta Thunberg, Mari Copeny, and Autumn Peltier (Wiikwemkoong First Nation) and lesser-known climate girl activists who design technologies, global non-profit organizations, and lawsuits against governments. Cunningham and Crandall reveal that climate girls are intersectional activists aware of how systems of oppression-including racism, heterosexism, and capitalism-impact the climate crisis. Individuals interested in women's and gender studies, environmental studies, and communications studies will find this book of particular interest.
