Women's Pledge

We pledge to support women in the Green movement by focusing on dismantling capitalism and patriarchy. We recognise that women’s leadership is key to tackling climate change.

  • We recognise the intersectional nature of power which creates additional barriers for women facing multiple discriminations; we support equality of opportunity, pay and political representation.
  • There is no gender equality without reproductive rights; we support bodily autonomy and a person’s right to choose.
  • Women have disproportionately shouldered the burden of 'austerity' choices; we support a fair and inclusive welfare state that recognises the value of care.
  • We support rights for all women, including disabled women, lesbian, bisexual and trans women, as set out in the Equality Act 2010 and UN Conventions on discrimination and violence against women.
  • We recognise the gendered and racial barriers that face women of colour, and seek to challenge racism, islamophobia, anti-semitism and other forms of discrimination and abuse.
  • We support statutory self-declaration for trans individuals, and the recognition of non-binary genders.
  • All debate must be respectful and inclusive. We condemn all forms of abuse and violence.

Quotes

“We all are different in terms of our experiences in life. All I know is that when we choose to do the right thing in solidarity, we can make a difference.”

- Nadia Kanyange

 

"There is no doubt that patriarchy is one of the greatest causes of inequality and that women are the largest group who suffer under patriarchy. There is also no doubt that women's inequality is intersectional with issues including race, religion, ability, sexuality, and gender identity. I am proud to take this pledge, to support women's rights, and human rights, and campaign for an end to inequality. "
