The New Administration: How will it affect the rights and health of women?

When: Monday, December 8, 1: 00 PM -3:00 PM EST
Where: The WIP (Women's International Perspective)
What: An interactive online forum, with Katherine Daniels of and Anika Rahman of Americans for UNFPA

Last month, Americans elected new leadership in Washington to bring change to the nation in a time of great challenges. Barack Obama will assume the Presidency at a time when our global concerns include the fact that every minute a woman dies from preventable complications of pregnancy and childbearing, where 6,800 new cases of HIV occur every day and where 200 million women want but can't get access to modern contraception.

How will the Obama Administration deal with these challenges, and can we expect the new Administration's approach to undo the disappointments of the last eight years?

Anika Rahman, President of Americans for UNFPA, and Katherine Daniels, editor of The Women's International Perspective, will be discussing this topic, answering your questions, and sharing the insights of women who work in low-income countries around the world.

Join us between 1:00 and 3:00 on Monday as we discuss the New Administration and what it means for the health and rights of women globally.
