A Woman's Worth
Further to this post about the G8 leaders' broken promises to save the 500,000 women a year who die of pregnancy-related causes, Alison @Creekside sent me a copy of the full-page ad she scanned. My dinky scanner was not up to the job.
There was also a welcome in the communique for "a global consensus on maternal, newborn and child health as a way to accelerate progress on the millennium development goals". This is a classic piece of "constructive ambiguity" as the G8 negotiators would call it.
Clearly, these people don't get it. The world will not be a better place -- either economically and environmentally -- unless women's lives are valued.
