With the Right Tools, Women Can Build Anything

She builds. Two words, endless possibilities.

This week’s video comes from the She Builds campaign, coordinated by Devex in partnership with the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), Chemonics International, Millennium Challenge Corporation, and others. The month-long campaign highlights the way women and girls are a positive force for global development, and shows how women build communities, economies, innovations, and the future.

We couldn’t agree more. But in order for a woman to build all that she is capable of, she needs a strong foundation. To PAI, this means her reproductive rights must be respected and her health needs met. Research shows women who have access to contraception and can control their childbearing are better able to improve their health, support their families, and participate in the workforce and in their communities.

What ideas do YOU have to support women and girls worldwide? Add your voice on the campaign’s Join the Conversation page or use the hashtag #SheBuilds to share your thoughts on Facebook and Twitter. And don’t forget to tune in tomorrow at 10 a.m. EST for a #SheBuilds tweet chat hosted by Women Deliver, where you can chat with young leaders about the community-based work they are doing to support the health and well-being of girls and women.
