Women Of Green began as a persistent urging by founder, Carolyn Parrs, to harness the collective power of women to create positive, dramatic and impactful changes in our communities and world. But how? As a long-time communicator, Carolyn did what she knew best, to communicate, first through her own podcast, and then by inviting other women and leaders to do the same. That’s why “Turn Up the Volume” is our mantra and motto on Women Of Green.
Today, Women Of Green is a multi media blog, news source and community celebrating the many women who are leading the way in sustainability and social justice. You’ll be hearing from authors and artists, chefs and lawyers, activists, journalists, policy makers and social entrepreneurs. These women are here to make a difference and use their voices and talents to create meaningful change on behalf of the planet and future generations.
We recognize the importance of UN sponsored campaigns to end domestic violence just as we recognize the pressing need for western women to lead the way in the conscious reduction of waste and wise consumption. We believe that the green movement has much to learn from social justice (and vice versa), that scientific discoveries can be metaphors for community revitalization, and that personal stories from local mothers have every right to exist alongside larger stories of business and environmental law.
Our interests at Women Of Green are broad, but the unifying thread of our focus is the importance of integrating and highlighting women’s ideas, dreams and designs. We hope you feel inspired to share your voice here.
Women Of Green. Turn Up the Volume.
