The Gendered Dynamics of Climate Change

 
9781780322100: The Gendered Dynamics of Climate Change

Climate change is typically approached from a Western, masculinist perspective. Labeling climate change as a scientific and security problem that requires 'male' solutions of technocratic or even military type, policy and scholarship exhibit a striking neglect of the gender dynamics of climate change. This book provides a much needed corrective to this dominant and dangerously one-sided discourse. Examining the complex ways in which conceptions of femininity and masculinity are implicated within the institutional frameworks of climate policy and societal discourses, The Gendered Dynamics of Climate Change provides clear case-based analyses of how both climate impacts and responses are gender-differentiated. Deliberately focusing on both men and women, and on developed as well as developing countries, this groundbreaking work provide a series of constructive and inspiring conceptual and empirical steps forward that emphasize basic rights, social protection, and human security as part of a larger project of social justice and profoundly ethical responses to climate change.
