加纳的性话题

埃瑟南·阿穆祖(Esenam Amuzu)

拉巴迪,加纳—性和生殖健康教育在许多西方国家是一个严肃的政治问题。像堕胎和“家庭”价值这样的话题,左右着选举结果。但在加纳一级其他许多发展中国家,家庭规划事关生死,特别是对女孩和年轻妇女来说。

六年前,我还是一名在加纳南部贫民窟中成长的女孩,十几岁的少女堕胎、14岁大的少女生孩子、18岁的男子因为他尚处在青春期的女朋友拒绝给他的父母洗衣服而对她拳打脚踢,这样的消息时有耳闻。有管理权的人——比如家长或老师——似乎毫不关注受害者都是未婚少女,通常都还不到有完全自主权的年龄。

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
