  • Womens Rights and Child Survival...
    The Womens Program is collaborating with the Childrens Program of Minnesota Advocates to focus attention on the connection between womens human rights and child mortality. By examining the issue of child mortality, the connection between discrimination against women in education and employment, and the welfare of the entire society will be explored. The connection between child survival and womens human rights is being examined in three countries at various stages of economic development, including Uganda, Mexico, and the United States. Through research and advocacy efforts, the project emphasizes the common issues and extent of the problem of child mortality and discrimination against women globally.
