India’s Golden Chance

In November I had the chance to go to Bihar, India for the first time for the Virginia Quarterly Review. Even better, it was for a positive gender story. The story, by Meera Subramanian, is about Pinki Kumari and Binod Singh who work for Pathfinders, who travel to rural villages around Bihar, the poorest state in India, and educate young girls and boys about sexual health, delaying marriage, reproductive rights and options, and delaying and reducing the number of children they have. Refreshing to see positive changes being made in Indian society. Check out the story here.
