Podcasts

Around the world, young people are raising their voices and taking action. Yet they remain underrepresented in political institutions and decision-making bodies, especially when it comes to issues relating to sexual and reproductive rights.


For this special podcast, recorded during the sixty-third session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women in New York, Project Syndicate, in collaboration with the International Women’s Health Coalition, follows three young advocates as they work toward gender empowerment and equality.
