Climate change is a man-made problem — with a feminist solution!


​Join former Irish President Mary Robinson and comedian Maeve Higgins in this uplifting new podcast, celebrating amazing women doing remarkable things in pursuit of climate justice.

Each episode features the Mothers of Invention driving powerful solutions to climate crisis – from the grassroots to the court room, the front lines to the board room – all over the world. 



Mothers Of Invention is a podcast on feminist climate change solutions from (mostly) women around the world.


Women are more likely to be affected by climate change, so women who are spearheading compassionate solutions. Mary, Maeve, and a different guest host every week dig into the biggest climate issues of our time. We learn how to cope, empower and enact change through the eyes of extraordinary women driving climate innovation– our Mothers of Invention. People-powered initiatives to new government policy to groundbreaking research to hard science. It’s not over till it’s over.


Mary Robinson, the first female President of Ireland and climate justice campaigner is one of the women leading the global climate movement. She is doing everything she can to raise the voices of other determined women, particularly those on the frontlines of climate change in the global south.   

Maeve Higgins, Irish comic based in NY, she is a contributing writer for the New York Times and her latest book 'Maeve in America' was published last year. She has completed  Maeve in America, a podcast series about immigration, and keeps her sense of humour about serious matters.
