Are You Ready For This?: Barbara Lee, Dems Says Climate Change Could Drive Women To Transactional Sex
By Pete Kasperowicz | 04/29/13 | 11:06 AM ET
Several House Democrats are calling on Congress to recognize that climate change is hurting women more than men, and could even drive poor women to "transactional sex" for survival.
The resolution, from Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and a dozen other Democrats, says the results of climate change include drought and reduced agricultural output. It says these changes can be particularly harmful for women.
