A book review for Marjorie Griffin Cohen's edited volume on Climate Change and Gender in Rich Countries is now available. The book, which includes a contribution by Professor Nathalie Chalifour titled "How a Gendered Understanding of Climate Change Can Help Shape Canadian Climate Policy" is a crucial contribution to understanding the gendered dimensions of climate change in the context of wealthy countries.
The review, by Heidi Walker in The Canadian Geographer, concludes by noting:
"Overall, this book expertly captures the complexity of the gendered dimensions of climate change and leaves the reader feeling both daunted and urgently motivated to participate in the creation of change. While it will certainly attract anyone interested in environmental issues viewed through a feminist lens, its relevance extends much further. It is an important read for anyone in policy development, academia, and non-governmental or labour organizations working towards the dual aspirations of ecological integrity and social justice."
