CGD Conference To Examine Relationship Between Access To Contraception, Women’s Economic Empowerment

Center for Global Development’s “Global Health Policy Blog”: Access to Contraception: A Key Ingredient in Women’s Economic Empowerment
Amanda Glassman, chief operating officer, senior fellow, and Board secretary at CGD, writes, “This Thursday December 7, CGD will host a group of economists and policymakers to discuss global evidence on the causal relationship between access to contraception and women’s economic empowerment. … I’m excited to be part of this conference that puts together many of the experts and the rigorous evidence available. I’m also excited that we will release a new paper by CGD nonresident fellow Grant Miller and coauthors, as well as a wrap-up brief by Rachel Silverman to build the field further. We’ll be joined by key policymakers — one of the co-creators of Canada’s new feminist development policy, Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau, as well as former Malawian President Dr. Joyce Banda. And we’ll discuss the ‘so what’ too — what does the evidence mean for policies and programs at home and abroad?” (12/4).
