Next week, on October 10, the Wilson Center in Washington, DC, will host the launch of a new UN Foundation report, “Women’s Economic Empowerment and Reproductive Health.” The event will be held from 12:00-2:00 pm and feature speakers from the UN Foundation, USAID and the Population Reference Bureau.

From the event announcement:

As more women around the world become economically active, are they also empowered? And how will this empowerment change other aspects of their lives, like reproductive health? A new report from United Nations Foundation, Women’s Economic Empowerment and Reproductive Health, addresses these and other key issues for the post-Millennium Development Goals development agenda. It also offers an independent perspective on the long-term implications of rising levels of women’s participation in the global labor force.
