For over 25 years, the International Women’s Health Coalition has been working to secure a just and healthy life for every women and girl by addressing many of the issues explored in the Magazine. IWHC is proud to be featured on a list of leading organizations working to protect and promote women’s rights, compiled by NY Times Columnist Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn.

Here’s a wrap-up of the key articles from Sunday’s Magazine:

The Women’s Crusade, a piece by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, authors of the new book Half the Sky, which is the inspiration for this special issue of the NY Times Magazine.

A New Gender Agenda, an interview with Hillary Rodham Clinton, which reflects IWHC’s core belief that we will only ensure global peace and security by achieving gender equality and securing women’s rights.

The Daughter Deficit, about sex selective abortion and female feticide. The book Disappearing Daughters is a really interesting analysis of this issue in the Indian context. Have a look at this report on a recent study of sex selection in China.
