Phil is joined by Friends of the Earth's Sam Castro, who is part of an international working group looking at dismantling patrirchy and gender justice. Friends of the Earth believes that social and environmental justice is only achievable through a radical transformation of our societies. We seek justice and freedom from all systems that devalue and exploit women, peoples and the environment, including patriarchy, racism, (neo)colonialism, class oppression, capitalism and heteronormativity. These systems cannot be tackled in isolation; they reinforce one another in the constant drive for material accumulation and for the benefit and privilege of elites in society.
Today we drill in to capitalism, why we must apply a feminist lense to our environmental justice work, and what some examples might look like.
