Climate Change Is About...Women

4.5 ·

Climate change is, water, extractivism.
Climate change is about...women, in leadership, in unity.
Climate change is about...much more than climate change.

This very short video accompanies the Democracy Center photodocumentary project 'Climate Change is About...Women'. It includes testimonies (filmed at the COP20 in Lima) from women farmers in resistance to extractive projects in Peru, alongside images from the photo project. The photodocumentary features four members of a women-led community in Bolivia where collective structures of living are sowing resilience to the violence that both patriarchy and climate change expose women to.

A taste of resistance, resilience, and empowerment.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
