International Women’s Day 2014: “Equality for women is progress for all”

In celebration of International Women’s Day, Dr. Ophira Ginsburg, scientist at Women’s College Research Institute, authored an editorial “Women’s Health Equity is Progress for All” for ecancermedicalscience.

The editorial discussed women’s health equity in global cancer control and policy.

“Morbidity and mortality from women’s cancers are shamefully high,” wrote Dr. Ginsburg. “Affordable access to early detection and proper treatment for breast and cervical cancer, which disproportionally affects the world’s most disadvantaged women, should be a human rights as well as an economic priority. Equality for women is indeed progress for all.”
