Mary Robinson

Mary Robinson was the first woman President of Ireland (from December 1990 to September 1997) and former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. She is also a passionate advocate for gender equality, women’s participation in peace-building, human dignity, and climate justice. 

Mary's globally recognized voice on climate change highlights the need for drastic action from world leaders, as well as the intersectionality of the climate emergency: from intergenerational injustice to gender inequality and biodiversity loss.
