Girls and Women at the Heart of the Discussion Throughout UNGA and CGI

By: Brittany Tatum, Women Deliver 
Looking back at 11 intense days of the United Nations General Assembly and The Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting, one thing is very apparent: The health, rights, and wellbeing of girls and women was at the center of more discussions than ever before.

Women Deliver and many valued partners carried the torch and made sure that one message was heard – and seen - loud and clear at countless events throughout the week: Girls and women are drivers of change and need to be placed at the center of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This past week, Women Deliver representatives and some Young Leaders made their way from UN Assembly Halls to high-level receptions, all to ensure that girl’s, women’s, and young people’s voices were part of the conversation during these these pivotal two weeks of discussions. Read More... 

Say NO to Child Labour and YES to Quality Education

Last time around, 15 years ago, I was there – and it didn’t turn out so well for girls and women. We’re more optimistic today, with the UN Secretary-General and many global leaders personally pledging to make the Sustainable Development Goals work for girls and women. Read More...


Women Deliver’s Commitment to new Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health

By: Brittany Tatum, Women Deliver

2015 and beyond is a moment in time where we are intensely focused on the world and its people. It is a time in which we could see the end of extreme poverty, preventable maternal deaths, and begin to reverse the effects of climate change. While these goals may seem like an unbelievably large undertaking, they can be achieved; but no one person can do it alone. One of the best ways to see progressive change is to work through partnerships. Which is exactly what Women Deliver believes, and exemplifies. Another great example of progress through partnership is Every Woman Every Child, and they’ve been leading the charge for the past five years. Read More...
