What can women do about climate change?


The issues that link women, health, equality and the environment will be explored at an East London Soroptimists’ event in South Woodford on 18 June. “What’s being a woman got to do with the environment?  And what can women do about climate change? The answer is a lot!” said a spokesperson for the group, which is part of Soroptimist International, the world’s largest women’s organisation. The presentation at the Woodford Memorial Hall (7.15pm; free; booking required) will be led by Kate Metcalf, co-director of the Women’s Environmental Network, which was founded in 1988 to offer a different way of thinking about and acting on environmental issues, using the perspectives and voices of women. “Come along and join the conversation!” Visit
