Girls' Health and Education: Igniting Change Worldwide | The Forum at HSPH by Harvard University published on 2013-07-29T15:00:58Z Research suggests that educating girls and women safeguards their well-being, ensures healthy future generations, alleviates poverty, and boosts GDP. Yet alarming discrepancies persist between genders and within and among nations on who receives quality, sustained education and, consequently, who experiences the most opportunities to thrive. This Forum event examined the sources of these discrepancies, including entrenched biases and predatory acts such as trafficking, and reviewed efforts to raise up the world's girls through health and education. This event was presented in partnership with Vulcan Productions, a founding partner of the 10x10 global action campaign centered on the new film Girl Rising, and in collaboration with GlobalPost.
