About the Episode

In the sixth episode of season two, We Need to Talk about Eco-Anxiety, Clover dives deeper into eco-feminism and the impact of the climate crisis on women & girls.

Through her conversation with Nergiz De Baere, creator of ChicksforClimate, Clover unearths the disproportionate effects of the climate crisis on women. We then hear from young people whose stories have been shaped by gender inequality; our resident psychotherapist, Caroline Hickman, on why women need to ‘embrace their inner bitch’; and finally, Firdaous El Honsali, Global Communications Director of Dove, on whether companies champion women’s voices or continue to silence them.

"Eco-feminism seeks to make a connection between how capitalism and the patriarchy exploit both the planet and women. Ecofeminism connects those two things together as one." - Nergiz De Baere
