Dr. Malcolm Potts on Educating Women


"Women that are educated find it easier to jump over the many unnecessary barriers that we often put between the woman and the information that means she needs to control her fertility," said Dr. Malcolm Potts. According to Potts, if we remove the barriers between knowledge and family planning, then women around the world will have the means to control the size of their families.
