Vegan director James Cameron says he believes women will save the world.

The filmmaker - best known for epic movies including Titanic and Avatar, as well as upcoming documentary The Game Changers - made the comments during an interview on CNN.

Cameron and wife Suzy Amis Cameron appeared on the show to talk about how a global shift towards a plant-based diet could have a positive impact on climate change.

'Female energy'

Speaking about his admiration for 'strong women', Cameron said: "I put my faith in women to change the world. I think men approach the world in a certain way that tends to be dominative and aggressive - it's just how men have been wired since the dawn of time and it's expressed through our entire Western colonialization culture, that we expand through the world and we dominate nature.

"We're going to have to change that worldview and I think we need a more female, Goddess-based perspective that we have to nurture life, we have to care for it.

"I think the great conflict of the future is going to be between the takers and the caretakers.  The takers are a male energy, and the caretakers are a female energy, so I've always respected that and I've celebrated women in the films I've made and I'm very lucky to be married to a very powerful, strong, caretaker warrior."
