“This past week I traveled to India and Burma to meet with leaders of the private sector, civil society, and government who are charting their nations’ bright and prosperous futures,” USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah reports in the agency’s “IMPACTblog.” Highlighting the observance of International Women’s Day on Friday, he writes, “At our meeting, we discussed the opportunity to shift ingrained social and cultural practices that perpetuate sexual violence among women, girls, and boys and the importance of educating India’s future generations. We also talked about the need for better data, stronger laws, and expanded services to both prevent and respond to gender-based violence [GBV]” (3/8).
