Giving Compass' Take:
• Sheryl Wu Dunn discusses the global oppression of women and the consequences of sex trafficking, gender-based violence, and other abuses.
• How can funders tackle gender-based violence? What are the additional challenges that conflicts and disasters add to gender-based violence?
Only when women in developing countries have equal access to education and economic opportunity will we be using all our human resources.
Sheryl WuDunn and her husband, Nick Kristof, won a Pulitzer for their New York Times coverage of the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests. Their joint reporting work in China and other developing nations convinced them both that, just as slavery was the moral issue of the 19th century, sex trafficking, gender-based violence, and other abuses make women's rights the moral issue of the 21st.
