  1. I would like to know whether China’s forced sterilizations will be featured in your discussions.

  2. I’d like to know the same thing as Olly Jone does.

  3. Unfortunately, our event will not feature China’s forced sterilization specifically. We will focus on discussing rural grassroots programs educating women and girls about covering prevention, childbirth, fistula and sanitation.

    Since you seem to be passionate about women’s reproductive health, we still invite you to come! I am sure you’ll find it interesting.

  4. China’s forced sterilizations is grave and unnoticed issue, thus I would like to know whether it will be featured in your discussions. Thank you.
