This week I’m speaking to Dr Anne Karpf. Anne is Professor of Life Writing and Culture at London Metropolitan University and is a writer, sociologist and award-winning journalist. In 2021 she released the book ‘How Women Can Save the Planet’, where she looks at how there is gender inequality across the board from how we experience the climate crisis to our ability to effect change.

The feminisation of responsibility as it relates to climate change
Why women are more affected by climate change than men
Women and the control of the means of polluting production
Why women lack the opportunity to generate a larger climate footprint
Women who are making a difference
