Decent Toilets for Women & Girls Vital for Gender Equality
Tim Wainwright is Chief Executive at WaterAidBy Tim WainwrightLONDON, Nov 16 2017 (IPS)This weekend marks World Toilet Day (November 19)– and the news is disheartening.

Women and Malnutrition in Africa
In conclusion, it is arguable that there are improved impacts on nutrition if agricultural interventions are targeted to women and when specific work is done around women’s empowerment (for example, through behaviour change communication), mediated through women’s time use, women’s own health and nutrition status, and women’s access to and control over resources as well as intrahousehold decision-making power. That this may be dismissed out of hand is not unlikely either, given the persistence of male dominance.The post Women and Malnutrition in Africa appeared first on Inter Press Service. (Source:...
