Have you noticed that women’s voices are getting louder? Community leaders are calling for better care of the aged and vulnerable. There is a ‘great resignation’ underway as employees look for better work options. Very few could have missed the incredible power unleashed under the guidance of Grace Tame, Brittany Higgins and March 4 Justice rallies in recent years.

Response by Kirsten Anker to Janet Salisbury’s discussion paper:
Independent mediation for united action on Climate Change

This post is a summary based on my discussion paper Independent mediation for uniting action on climate change, which was the catalyst for the formation of the Women’s Climate Congress.
