Save the planet: support women’s rights

This Sunday, March 8th, is International Women’s Day. Among the many things that I could say about the unequal treatment of women around the world, one point is vital to our future.

It’s simply this. Wherever women are educated, empowered financially and in control of their own fertility, birthrates have fallen.

Empowering women is the only way to control the world’s spiralling population. And unless we check population growth, we won’t be able to stop climate change and the decimation of the planet’s natural resources.
