http://www.oxfam.org.uk/get_involved/... The annual monsoon rains in Bangladesh are getting heavier and more unpredictable -- last year's floods were the worst in decades, affecting nine million people -- but few people can have encountered a force of nature quite like Sahena Begum.

Fiercely determined, she is spearheading community efforts to deal with changing weather in Kunderpara village.

To watch more short films about women who have taken the fight against climate change into their own hands, visit http://www.oxfam.org.uk/sisters

Extract: As obvious as it sounds, climate change affects everybody.
But climate change is already having a disproportionate impact on people in developing countries, and its hitting women hardest.

Its not the easiest idea to understand, so to help explain weve made these short films about women, in both rich and poor countries, who are determined to do whatever they can to put a stop to climate change.

Watch them and become aware of the impact our changing climate is having on peoples lives. And be inspired to join the fight against climate change too.
