G7 Must Elevate Women, Girls To Top Of Agenda

The Guardian: Dear G7, it’s time to put girls and women at the top of your agenda
Katja Iversen, CEO of Women Deliver

“…It is impossible to eradicate poverty, build resilient health systems, and take care of the planet if women are not healthy, thriving members of society. The world has long looked to the G7 for cues on which priorities really matter, and the answer is straightforward: healthy girls and women. These seven countries have a unique opportunity to step up their commitments and convince others to do the same. Advancing the health and rights of women is the right — and smart — thing to do for any nation hoping to remain or emerge as a leader on the global stage” (6/4).
