A new film is focusing on the daily struggles of women around the world as they deal with a rapidly changing environment.

Weathering Change, produced by Population Action International, travels to Ethiopia, Nepal, and Peru to hear first-hand from women who are struggling to care for their families amid crop failures and water scarcity. Click above to watch a trailer.

Suzanne Ehlers, President and CEO of Population Action International will introduce a panel discussion during a screening of the film tomorrow from the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C. (RSVP required to attend).

With global population reaching 7 billion this year, the film calls for empowering women to help families adapt to climate change, and discusses family planning, education for girls, sustainable agriculture and conservation as potential solutions.
