Unleashing the Power of Women in a World of 7 Billion

Yesterday in Washington, DC we co-sponsored an event with UNFPA, National Geographic, government agencies and non-governmental organizations  focusing on women and girls as critical engines of change in the new reality of 7 billion people.

In late October 2011, world population will reach 7 billion people. It is critical that we unleash the power of women and girls to alleviate poverty and accelerate progress on all of our global development goals.
