On March 17, 2015, PRB will host a 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,” will explore how access to quality reproductive health services protect and improve the health and economic well-being of women and girls. Research supported by the Hewlett Foundation's Population and Poverty Research Initiative demonstrates that delaying childbirth, greater spacing between children, and good obstetric care supports women's continued school enrollment, participation in the labor force, and economic productivity. Ensuring the right to access reproductive health care empowers women!
