Women7 Podcast with Heinrich Böll Foundation

“Our Voices, our Choices” is the name of the Heinrich Böll Foundation’s international, gender equality policy podcast series. During the German G7 presidency, Women7 is cooperating with “Our Voices, our Choices” for a very special project: In a three-part podcast series, you will learn how the W7 Dialogue contributes to bringing the perspective of civil society into the G7 process and which gender equality policy issues will be in focus in 2022.

Part one looks at the history of the Women7. How did this informal group of feminist civil society representatives come into being? Who is actually behind the W7? These and other questions are the focus of the first episode, produced by Franziska Walser of the Audio Collective. Click here for the episode (Only available in German language).

The second episode “W7 – Engaging for Gender Equitable Climate Policy” looks into the gendered consequences of the climate crisis. Why are women and girls affected differently by climate change?
