World Population Day: Why focus on teenage girls?

July 11, 2016

World Population day (http://www.unfpa.org/events/world-pop…) is an annual event, observed on July 11 every year, which seeks to raise awareness of global population issues. The event was established by the Governing Council of the United Nations Development Programme in 1989. This year’s theme is “Investing in Teenage Girls.”

Catherine Cerulli, director of the Susan B. Anthony Center, the Laboratory of Interpersonal Violence and Victimization and associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Rochester, offers her insights on the human rights issues that young women face today and what can be done to address these challenges.
