Congress President Sonia Gandhi speaks on Women as Agents of Change at Commonwealth Lecture 2011

London(UK) : March 17, 2011.“Most of the climate debate so far has been gender-blind”
Speaking at the Commonwealth Lecture in London, Sonia Gandhi called for women’s voices and concerns to be heard in the global climate change debate, to “help the world find a more sustainable and less consumerist path to development”.... “Among all the challenges facing humankind in the twenty-first century, few are more pressing than climate change and global warming. Unfortunately... most of the climate debate so far has been gender-blind. Yet women have played a special role in raising environmental consciousness... Indira Gandhi herself... in 1972, powerfully expressed the link between poverty and environmental degradation, an issue which continues to shape the current debate.”
