When Women Lead, The Environment Wins

“Ethical Markets congratulates Rachel’s Network on this useful report and for all their fine work. I am honored to  serve on their advisory group.

~Hazel Henderson, Editor“

Since 2000, Rachel’s Network has made the case that gender disparity in government not only stymies equality, it has serious implications for conservation, public health, and environmental policy as well.

That’s the message in our report When Women Lead which examines the environmental voting records of members of Congress by gender. We’ve recently updated our website with 2016 and 2017 data and the results are clear:

Women in Congress vote for legislation supporting clean air, clean water, renewable energy, climate action, and public health much more often than their male counterparts.Read the Report Here

If we want to make progress on environmental policy, we should help elect more women to public office, and support them during their tenure.

Share this report with your colleagues. With your help, we can achieve gender parity in government and a healthier world.

Sincerely,

Fern, Ariana, Casey, Jamie, and Erica
The Rachel’s Network Team
