Sisters on the Planet
Join a movement of powerful women and men who are teaming up with Oxfam to help women around the world fight hunger, poverty, and climate change.
Together with individuals and local groups in more than 90 countries, Oxfam America helps women and girls overcome gender discrimination, realize their potential, and become decision makers and leaders. Oxfam is also harnessing the power of women to create political and social change through its Sisters on the Planet initiative.
Inspired by women here and abroad who are battling climate change in their communities, a diverse group of American women, including celebrities, have joined Oxfam America as Sisters on the Planet. Since 2008, hundreds of influential Sisters have worked to raise awareness about women and climate change and to help vulnerable communities here and abroad adapt to changes in the climate.
Today, the Sisters on the Planet are raising awareness about hunger, climate change, and other crises facing women in poor countries. We are using our influence to change the unfair rules that keep women trapped in poverty. And we’re calling for a worldwide investment in women farmers, so we can fight hunger now and for generations to come.
