Please join the Columbia Journal of Gender and Law for our 2018 symposium, Climate Change and Gender Justice, on Friday, March 2, at 9:00 am in JG 105.

This symposium presents scholarship examining the intersection of climate change and gender-based disparities. The selected scholarship considers the impact of climate change on child marriage, public health, economic mobility, and domestic abuse. By shining a light on the ways in which climate change exacerbates inequality, this symposium supports a proactive, inclusive approach to climate change and gender justice.  Featured scholarship includes:

  • Examining the Relationship Between Climate Change and Child Marriage: Case Studies from Bangladesh and Mozambique, by Heather Barr, Katharina Rall, and Christie McLeod;
  • Raping Indian Country, Profs. Sarah Deer and Elizabeth Ann Kronk; and 
  • Creative Destruction: Zika and (Alleged) Bodies of Contagion, by Amanda de Lisio, Ph.D., and Caroline Fusco.

The symposium is co-sponsored by the Earth Institute, the Center for Gender & Sexuality Law, Empowering Women of Color, Columbia Law Women's Association, Environmental Law Society, Queer and Trans People of Color, OutLaws, Columbia Law Feminist Society, Native American Law Students Association, Columbia Journal of Environmental Law, Columbia Journal of Race and Law, and Columbia Human Rights Law Review.
