In a keynote address to commemorate International Women’s Day, journalist Monalisa Changkija explored how the environment becomes feminised in discourses of the environment. She outlined the stemming gender disparities between men and women’s obligation to the environment and how Indigenous women are the most at risk. She refers to the increasing difficulty of seed sovereignty, and the unpredictability of climate change and its impacts upon women farmers and agriculture in Northeastern and Himalayan states. She proceeds to comment on how systemic imbalance sidelines Indigenous women from important discussions in government issues.
