The presenter says, “Will we invest in helping ALL women get what they want NOW?”

“I want to bring every good thing to this child before I have another” summarizes an African woman.  MANY women in Sub-saharan Africa and South Asia DO NOT have access to birth control.  I find this fact one of the MOST ridiculous realities on our planet.

 

Hearing this talk kind of makes the idea of seeking female sexual empowerment small in the face of much larger issues.  But it is NO SMALL THING to celebrate your sexuality and to encourage other women to protect their bodies and enjoy sexual freedom as well at the very least by having access to birth control.

At the end of the talk, Melinda Gates says to help, you can join the conversation to put this BACK on the global health agenda:
