Health
Our closest relationships can also be the site of serious health risks and hazards.

Some of these issues, such as HIV/AIDS, may well be considered a signature issue for our generation to deal with. AIDS now ranks as one of the leading causes of death among young women aged 20 to 40 in several cities in Europe, sub-Saharan Africa, and North America. Other problems—such as intimate violence—have been serious problems for women throughout the ages, and are no less serious today.

But what you’ll notice in this section is an important shift and an encouraging message. Whether they’re discussing human trafficking or reproductive health, young women are talking about problems “without falling into victimhood,” to borrow the words of Kathryn Fischer. They are taking courageous steps to improve their lives and their relationships, and positively engaging their partners and communities in these efforts.

You can join these inspiring women. Learn more here and share your own stories.
