Please Read Nicholas Kristof's and Sheryl Wudunn's crucially important book HALF THE SKY: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide.. Jane Roberts and Her 34 Million Friends is a big part of Chapter 8.. A Kristof quote about Jane: I tend to think that the great injustices of the kind we write about in `Half the Sky' will involve not only leadership from the White House and the UN but also from citizens like Jane Roberts in places like Redlands.. How very nice!!!.. My (Jane's) Fantasy Talk to a big banquet in the presence of U.. N.. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and UNFPA's Dr.. Babatunde Osotimehin.. http://worldpulse.. com/node/.. 74437.. I would love you to read this.. People tell me it is really good.. Here it is.. The work of the United Nations Population Fund is THE most important on earth.. Listen to the words of Ban Ki-Moon (seated right there) In women, the world has the most significant but untapped potential for development and peace.. If that is true, and it is, then that is our task, to unleash the power of women for development (which means cutting poverty and all of the scourges which poverty entails) and for peace, which means doing what is necessary for women to be equal in all realms of civil society and particularly in the political process of making wise decisions for minimizing conflict and enhancing human potential for the long term.. Listen to the words of Dr.. Babatunde Osotimehin , executive director of our beloved UNFPA (seated right there) in a letter to the New York Times.. The time has long passed when anyone can or should be allowed to dictate or restrict women s rights.. No young girl should be forced into marriage.. Each woman should have the means to exercise her human right to choose when and how often to have children.. Finally, the world should affirm, once and for all, that no argument can ever justify violence against any woman on any grounds whatsoever.. Amen to that!.. The most recent State of World Population Report put out by UNFPA is entitled By Choice Not By Chance (show on screen): Family Planning, Human Rights and Development.. In it things are said which are a little more daring than in previous years.. For example: Relative to previous generations greater numbers of young people and adults of reproductive age are having sex outside of marriage with no immediate desire to have children.. Ensuring their access to family planning regardless of their marital status requires an acknowledgement of sexual activity for pleasure and intimacy BEFORE and AFTER marriage as well as within it.. And also Though religious practices and social norms suggest that marriage is a pre-requisite for sexual activity, the State has an obligation to ensure access to family planning to all people irrespective of their religious beliefs and sexual practices without discrimination.. In this instance UNFPA is dealing with the REAL WORLD, not an idealized world.. Good for them.. Did you know that the median age on the planet is just over 25? Believe me there are hundreds of millions of young people whose sexual urges are pretty darn strong.. Planned children prosper.. I want you to watch this vimeo put out by Population Action International on the devastating effects of a lack of access to family planning on individual women.. It s about two minutes long.. http://www.. populationaction.. org/empty-handed/.. (Show vimeo) People, all of you, nearly all of you, in this room have used family planning at some time in your lives.. Family planning is a great gift of the 20th and 21st centuries.. It gives you choices for your individual lives.. Here in the U.. we take it for granted.. At the International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo, Egypt in 1994 the whole world adopted this language: Couples and individuals have the basic right to decide freely and responsibly the number, spacing, and timing of their children and to have the information and the means to do so, and the right to attain the highest standard of sexual and reproductive health.. Wow, there it is in black and white.. Yet this promise of  ...   approximately 2.. 8 billion people on the planet.. There are now well over 7 billion and according to very recently revised figures by the U.. Population Division, the world population in 2050 will be nearly 9.. 6 billion, 3 hundred million over previous estimates.. This growth will come in the poorest countries with the least resources for the infrastructure necessary for schools, transportation, sanitation etc.. These countries with high population growth rates also have high rates of maternal mortality, high infant and child mortality and guess what, women have low status.. And then there is climate change.. With droughts and floods and extreme weather events, will the U.. s World Food Program be able to keep up? I don t think so.. Look at the Sahel right now.. Will the U.. Children s Fund be able to stem the tide of malnutrition and stunted growth (both body and brains) for the millions of children who essentially die aborning or before the age of 5 because their mothers never should have gotten pregnant in the first place? Will there be enough fresh water for 9 billion thirsty people and for other living things on the planet? NO! Let s get real.. And energy, won t 9 billion people want a job that uses the planet s resources and energy for a life style which we here would find acceptable? The planet can not do it.. No it can t.. And there will be conflicts over these resources of food, water, energy (often couched in religious terms) and the U.. will become nothing but a crisis response crisis management organization asking for billions of supplementary funds for this and that humanitarian and environmental crisis.. I think the Secretary General and Dr.. Osotimehin know this in their heart of hearts.. It is difficult though to be brutally honest.. People want to hear optimistic forecasts which show possible usually technological solutions.. Balderdash!.. Gender inequality is the moral scourge and the moral challenge of the age.. At her hearings to become Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said: Of particular concern to me is the plight of women and girls who comprise the majority of the world s unhealthy, unschooled, unfed, and unpaid.. That is an enormous statement, just enormous.. Unhealthy illiterate and poverty stricken girls and women have no real choices for their lives.. They are disempowered in the extreme.. UNFPA strives to give them the choices that we all are able to make.. Just imagine your lives if you couldn t read! I have to show you this little booklet from a UNFPA (put picture on screen) sponsored school in Senegal.. On the front in French, for all kids and their parents to see: Little girls have as much right to food, education, and health care as little boys.. We live in a world where you have to SAY THAT? Good grief! But UNFPA is there saying just that!.. I have a vision.. My vision is this and I say it in my book We have to imagine a world where all people, men and women in equal partnership with no artificial legal, cultural, religious or economic barriers work together for the greater good.. We must imagine a world where all people regardless of their GENDER are judged, as Dr.. Martin Luther King might have said, only by the content of their character.. There is such a long long way to go.. But yet, only then, only if this vision which is shared by millions of people worldwide and of course by our two highly honored guests, becomes reality, can we as a people and as inhabitants of this planet realize an acceptable future.. UNFPA is at the forefront of this struggle.. And it is the most crucial struggle on earth.. I ll close with a quote by the former Ambassador to Africa for HIV/Aids, the Canadian lion Stephen Lewis: I challenge you to enter the fray against gender inequality.. There is no more honorable or productive calling.. There is nothing of greater import in this world.. All roads lead from women to social change.. Be generous with your money and your time.. Educate people, particularly young people, educate politicians.. Educate the world.. As I said at the beginning: THE WORK OF THE UNITED NATIONS POPULATION FUND IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ON EARTH!.. Statement by Jane: Gender inequality is the moral scourge and the moral.. challenge of the age.. The United Nations Population Fund is at the core.. of the fight for women s health, education, human rights and equality.. It is the most noble of all causes and most important going forward for.. people, the planet and peace.. PDF of my book 34 Million Friends of the Women of the World..

What an indictment! And she went on to say: The United States must remain an unambiguous and unequivocal voice in support of women's rights in every country, every region, every continent.. We must all (Americans as well as others) become unambiguous and unequivocal voices.. That is what 34 Million Friends calls upon us to do.. My vision for 34 Million Friends has always been that it should become a worldwide grassroots movement for the women and girls of the world.. We must enter the fray against gender inequality.. My friend, Stephanie Ortoleva, an international human rights lawyer who happens to be blind has a wonderful web site:.. womenenabled.. Follow Jane Roberts on Twitter and Become Her Friend on Facebook.. Click here: Jane Roberts (34Million) on Twitter.. UNFPA works in over 150 countries at their invitation to help women survive childbirth and to help families practice family planning.. It educates the world's adolescents about the dangers of HIV/AIDS.. It stresses girls' education and discourages harmful cultural practices such as female genital mutilation and child marriage which often lead to long term harm.. And UNFPA is at the very heart of the fight to achieve the Millennium Development Goals.. I urge you with all my heart to become aware.. un.. org/millenniumgoals.. Look particularly at MDG 5.. GOAL 5:.. IMPROVE MATERNAL HEALTH.. Target 1:.. Reduce by three quarters the maternal mortality ratio.. The high risk of dying in pregnancy or childbirth continues unabated in sub-Saharan Africa and Southern Asia (Worldwide over 500,000 women die giving birth every year, one a minute.. ).. Little progress has been made in saving mothers lives.. Skilled health workers at delivery are key to improving outcomes.. Target 2:.. Achieve universal access to reproductive health.. Antenatal care is on the rise everywhere.. Adolescent fertility is declining slowly.. An unmet need for family planning undermines achievement of several other goals.. And all of us who are reading this have no doubt practiced some type of family planning.. Family planning is such a gift.. If truth be told, the ability to control one s fertility is at the very core of women s ability to become educated and to make choices.. For me, access to reproductive health including family planning is at the very core of the world s ability to reduce poverty and misery.. Voluntary family planning saves women s and children s lives, reduces population pressures, gives the planet a chance to sustain us, and contributes mightily to peace and stability.. One can not emphasize enough its importance not only for all the reasons above but also because it helps to prevent many of the 20 million illegal and unsafe abortions which take place every year and which take a terrible toll on women and their families.. UNFPA is the largest supplier of family planning counselors, reproductive healthcare physicians and workers, and of family planning commodities in the world.. Please visit its web site.. You can learn much valuable information at.. unfpa.. Warm Cheers,.. Roberts..

    Descriptive info: A touching hand-written letter to Jane.. Feb 28, 2010.. Dear Jane,.. For Christmas this past year, my mother (Francine Javarauckas) gave me the a book Half the Sky.. It was also at that time that we learned that there were no more treatment options for her colon cancer.. Knowing she had only a couple of months to live, she and I started making preparations.. In one of our conversations, she asked where donations (memorial) should go.. and that is when I told here about the DOT ORGS listed in Half the Sky.. She was very impressed by 34 Million Friends.. Together, in her bed, she and I used her laptop to go to the site, and we watched your video.. When done--she said That's the  ...   very well be one of those women that find the cure for cancer, work toward world peace, etc.. Included is $110 in memorial donations from several people that attended her service earlier this month.. Before my mom passed on February 16, she and I agreed that in addition to collecting for 34 Million Friends, it is important to get the word out and make as many people aware as we can.. We included it in the paper announcement and I will continue to spread the word.. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help the cause.. I travel all over the globe and I have an idea of what it is like in many of the developing countries.. Kind Regards, Trish Torizzo..
