Up for Debate: What are the biggest challenges facing women and girls worldwide, and how do we solve them?

8 responses

This International Women's Day, we asked some of the world's leading authorities on issues affecting women and girls worldwide to weigh in, share their insight, and propose solutions. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Camfed, the Elders, Intel Foundation, UNAIDS, Women Deliver, Population Services International and the Clinton Global Initiative share their wisdom on why the plight facing women and girls is the most critical issue of our time--and what we can do about it. This debate will also set the stage for a larger discussion at this year’s Skoll World Forum in Oxford, UK.
