The effects of climate change are certainly not gender-neutral. Trump’s decision is not in the interests of the millions of people who are demanding urgent action and already working to reduce emissions. Morgan explains that worldwide, and especially in the global south, women are on the front lines of climate change, with food insecurity increasing as temperatures rise, weather patterns become less predictable and climate-related disasters grow more frequent. Rural women in particular, often responsible for ensuring adequate nutrition for their families, are at the centre of this challenge. Yet their voices are muted, their choices restricted. Women own less than 20% of the world's land
, and they have limited access to resources such as credits, climate-smart technologies and finance. Whether they stay behind to care for their families and communities when climate disasters strike, or migrate to find food, safety and decent work, rural women are much more vulnerable and marginalised.
