Here’s what we’ve been checking out online this week:
A week after Huffington Post blogger Joyce McFadden wrote a wonderful piece highlighting how IWHC and its partners are empowering women and girls against HIV/AIDS, Madeline Wheeler also mentions our work against child marriage in her latest Huffington Post article.
And on Akimbo:
We posted our partner Ishita Chaudry’s analysis of of a statement issued by the Bali Youth Force, prior to the 9th International Congress on AIDS in Asia and the Pacific.
Audacia Ray updated us on the latest news surrounding proposed changes to the Dominican Republic’s Constitution. We published the first in a series of posts on Akimbo chronicling the advocacy of women’s rights leaders against this restrictive proposal in April.
As part of our new web feature Capital Critiques, we highlighted a powerful speech delivered by United States Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, which emphasized the Administration’s new “era of engagement” with the international community.
