WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT AND GLOBAL HEALTH: A Twenty-First-Century Agenda
Show Guest: Shari Dworkin
What is women's empowerment, and how and why does it matter for women's health? These are questions that the University of California Global Health Institute's (UCGHI) Center of Expertise (COE) on Women's Health, Gender, and Empowerment aimed to answer with this book. According to Shari L. Dworkin, co-editor of Women's Empowerment and Global Health, the oppression of women and girls is a pervasive human rights violation with profound effects on their health and wellbeing.
Women's Empowerment and Global Health presents thirteen multidisciplinary case studies that demonstrate how science and advocacy can be creatively merged to enhance the agency and status of girls and women. Seven of the chapters are enriched by complementary videos that provide readers with context about programs in India, Kenya, the United States, Mexico, Nicaragua, Zimbabwe, and South Africa.
