"We're Women for Climate Justice"

Women in Paris made their voices heard on Sunday November 29, when they gathered to form a Human Chain with ten thousands others, peacefully holding hands in solidarity with communities affected by climate change.

On the eve of the Paris Climate Summit, in over 2,300 events across 175 countries, at least 570,000 people of all ages, backgrounds and beliefs took to the streets to call in unison for a fairer, cleaner, safer world.

In Paris, where marches were officially banned, thousands of people found creative ways to stand up for a future powered by 100% renewables.


22,000 shoes – including those of Pope Francis and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon – were placed at Place de la Republique on Sunday, on behalf of the 400,000 people who were expected to have marched.

WECF as part of the Women's Global Call for Climate Justice joined thousands of others in the so called Human Chain.
