Equality between women and men can reduce poverty and save and improve lives. Experts know how to achieve gender equality: by providing an education for all children; equal access to reproductive health; the equal participation of women in civil, economic and political life; and the implementation of internationally-agreed laws protecting human rights. For tens of millions of women, these are issues of life and death.

 
Title: State of World Population Report 2005 Powerpoint Presentation
 

Taking key points from the Report, this 26-slide presentation explains why gender equality is essential to achieving lasting poverty reduction. Powerful images from the report reinforce the message of hope and the necessity of taking action now.
