Over 60 people attended PopPov's parallel event during the 59th annual UN Commission on the Status of Women. The panel, "Rights Make Might! Reproductive Rights as Economic Empowerment for Women and Girls," explored how access to quality reproductive health services protect and improve the health and economic well-being of women and girls. Researchers Anne Khasakhala, Catalina Herrera Almanza, and Amber Peterman shared some of their findings. The event was co-sponsored by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW). Kate Gilmore (Deputy Executive Director, UNFPA) and Sarah Degnan Kambou (President, ICRW) provided comments affirming the importance of reproductive health to promote economic empowerment.
