A Toxics-Free Future

International Women's Day

IPEN’s new short video about women and chemicals honors many of the women environmental health scientists and advocates dedicated to a world in which toxic chemicals are no longer produced or used in ways that harm human health and the environment. The video makes the case that attention to the differential impacts of toxic substances on women and girls as well as the differential exposure risks is fundamental to effective and sound management of chemicals and waste. Please watch and share.

Gender equality is a human right, including equality in political decision making, economic access and protection from toxic chemicals and waste.

This International Women's Day, IPEN honors the women in our network who work tirelessly for a toxics-free future.
