Since February, the Women Resisting Extractivism Film Club has highlighted the leadership of women land and water defenders and attempted to create a generative online space for participants to come together, learn, and build community.
Mother Earth and Resource Extraction: Women Defending Land and Water (MERE Hub) is a digital platform on the gendered impacts of resource extraction, created for and in consultation with women land defenders from across the globe who are mobilizing around large-scale resource extraction. It builds on KAIROS’ work with partners on these issues. A number of videos, including the introductory video, the Gendered Side of Corporate Accountability can be found on the site.
