The climate crisis is also a reproductive justice crisis: How do you protect your health and your children in an increasingly dangerous and toxic environment? How do you decide whether or not to have a baby when a healthy and stable future is increasingly jeopardized? Even with access to fertility regulation, no one makes reproductive ‘choices’ freely in the face of so many economic and environmental pressures.
On Earthgauge Radio this week, I feature an interview with Meghan Kallman and Josephine Ferorelli, the founders of Conceivable Future, which is a women-led network bringing awareness to the threat climate change poses to reproductive justice, and demanding an end to fossil fuel subsidies.
Meghan Kallman is a sociologist who studies how social movements succeed, why they fail and how we can sustain social commitment and activism in a globalized world.
Josephine Ferorelli is a writer, editor, illustrator, and yoga instructor.
