Women First: Improve Society & Protect Environment

An expert discussion on innovative approaches to empowering women around the world and how this benefits individuals, societies, and the environment. Women’s rights resulting in individual economic and social empowerment is well-documented. This panel discussion will not only solidify that connection, but will also examine the links between strong sexual and reproductive health and rights and sustainable and healthy societies. Attendees will also learn about diverse barriers faced by women both domestically and internationally; the wide-ranging social, economic and environmental benefits of women having the freedom to access reproductive health care and plan their own families; and, finally, will learn about cutting-edge and avant-garde approaches incorporating technology, entertainment-education and on-the-ground advocacy to empower women and address other global health challenges.
