Extreme weather driven by climate change exacerbates underlying misogyny and increases domestic violence, the Washington Post reports. “Heat waves, floods, climate-induced disasters increase sexual harassment, mental and physical abuse, femicide, reduce economic and educational opportunity and increase the risk of trafficking due to forced migration,” Terry McGovern, department head of Population and Family Health at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, told the Post. The connections between misogyny, the climate crisis, and authoritarian movements — described as petro-masculinity. The combined harms are heightened for women of color and trans women and extraction of fossil fuels is especially intertwined with violence by men in the oil and gas industry against Native women and girls.
