Disappearing Islands with Kathy Jetñil-Kijiner

What on earth do you do when your island home is literally disappearing under the sea due to climate change?

This is the reality for Marshallese slam poet and activist Kathy Jetñil-Kijiner who will be bringing her fight to the Sydney Opera House for All About Women this March.

Sophie spoke to Kathy about the power of words, government inaction and the precarious situation on the Marshall Islands.
