Women's Health: A Conversation Across Generations

Featured scholar: Estefania Palomino. // Spanning generations and geography, this conversation on women’s health looks at the triumphs and challenges of the last several decades and identifies still-to-be-seized opportunities for positive change. Advancing health means putting women in charge of their own fertility and approaching medicine with sensitivity to gender, but it also means reducing poverty, strengthening families, and promoting justice. What can we learn from women long on the frontlines, and what dreams do new activists have? How can we move beyond ideology to action and build societies that put women’s health at the center of progress for all?
