In honor of #InternationalWomensDay here are some cool @vox_dev columns and videos that I went back to this morning...
First up, a great interview from #VoxDevTalks with #ChrisWoodruff on how women are becoming managers in #Bangladesh @timsvengali
Second: the role of skill building and training for adolescent girls in #Uganda & #Libera by @markus_gold
"Gender-sensitive youth employment programmes combining income generation & life skills training can be effective in helping adolescent girls succeed"
Third: the long term effects of #Mexico's Progressa cash transfer program by @susanwparker_mx and #TomVogl
"Conditional transfers in childhood improve education, labour, and economic outcomes in adulthood, especially for women"
Fourth: a great video by @femonomics on her work with @profnavaashraf @BauNatalie & #KathleenMcGinn
"Training girls in Zambia to negotiate saw them use strategies to secure household resources to stay in school longer, even in the face of poverty"
Last but definitely not least: impacts of role models. Watching Queen of Katwe, a movie about a girl from the slums of #Kampala winning chess olympiads, improved math test scores among high schools kids (both girls and boys)
@QueenOfKatwe @MiraPagliNair
Forgot to add that this last column @vox_dev about Queen of Katwe was written by @EmmaRiley19 who by the way just successfully defended her thesis @UniofOxford @oxford_csae - congrats, Emma!!!
