This past Saturday, ahead of International Women’s Day today, we led our Sustt newsletter with a story on online abuse against women environmental activists. Efforts to discredit women’s voices doesn’t just have damaging effects at home and in the workplace,  they can also impact efforts to curb climate change.

Gender equality is one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and a topic we address often in our work on reducing inequalities. Recently, for example, we’ve been looking in to how to tackle period poverty – a problem that has been exacerbated by Covid-19. We’ve also explored how community activism – a role often carried out by women of colour – needs to be properly valued from an economic standpoint. 

In the spirit of IWD, we’d also like to take this time to highlight some work by other writers who study and champion gender equality. Some of our favourites include:

Our Sustt+ educational tool is geared toward answering the biggest questions about sustainability, including questions about gender equality. To celebrate International Women’s Day, we’re giving a year’s free subscription to anyone who signs up to Sustt+ before end-of-day on 8 March. We hope it helps people understand more about the importance of equality, and also bolsters the work being done to educate the world about sustainability.
