At the Last Well on Earth: Climate Change Is a Feminist Issue
There will be a time, in most of the world, when the last well goes dry. And
this is because so much of the world lives already on the brink of a dreadful
thirst, a life only made tolerable because women travel great distances to find
the wells or the rivers or the ditches, scoop up the water, and bring it home.
They carry it on their backs, or their heads, or on their hips, like a child. In
Africa alone, women walk forty billion hours a year to bring this water home.
