Newsbrief

I read an article yesterday about the College Bound Sisters program through UNC Greensboro that pays girls between the ages of 12 and 18 a dollar for every day they don’t get pregnant, which goes towards college costs.

Tweets used to summarize world religions @ Boston University…for example, Buddhism: “Path=let go(d).”

Almost 70 percent of male tourists visiting Thailand plan to participate in sex trade. Wow. That’s deeply troubling.

Another matter to consider is the issue of Demographic Winter. So, while we want women to be free to receive an education and earn a living, there is the tension of the opposite end of the spectrum: highly educated women who aren’t having any children or not enough to sustain the population. It’s complicated!
