And this came from No Limits:
Hillary will speak about women’s health, and what we can do to reduce maternal mortality and save women’s lives this Friday, January 8th. Her speech marks the 15th anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development, which adopted international goals for increased access to education, especially for girls; reductions in infant, child and maternal mortality; and support for reproductive health care. What are we doing to reach these goals – and what more can be done?
Watch Hillary’s speech live from the State Department at about 2:30 pm EST on Friday! It will be streamed live or posted afterwards here.
