Video: Accelerating Equality for Women and Girls around the World

On Thursday, December 3rd, EngenderHealth co-hosted a lively event at the Paley Center in New York with Equality Now and Ashoka featuring each organization's leader in conversation with Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, authors of Half the Sky. The speakers and audience members engaged in a stimulating discussion on many dimensions of womens health, rights, and welfare, with moderating by Maria Hinojosa of NOW on PBS. Watch the video and learn more about a range of subjects, from media representations of women and girls to the decline of the footbinding tradition in China.

The video is in two parts, each one approximately an hour long. Part 1 of the video includes discussion among the panelists, and Part 2 features the panelists responding to questions from the audience. Both will play in the video player above, or you can watch them directly on YouTube: Part 1 and Part 2.
