Here are some of the questions I asked Erin about her work at Women’s Voices for the Earth:
Q. Are connections being made between hormone disruptor chemicals in our cleaning and beauty products and breast cancers, early onset puberty, Endometriosis, and infertility?
Q. Many of the Products marketed to women of color, such as skin lighteners, hair relaxers and dyes, contain some of the most toxic chemicals on the market and are known cancer-causing agents. How does this toxic exposure contribute to their higher burden of chronic disease?
Q. Can you tell us about the unique role women play as advocates for change and how we can get involved with Women’s Voices for the Earth?
