Re: Questions for the Discussion

I've taught students who have attended events like this, and they can be very
important. How many universities do something like this? How is the political
will and financial support to continue doing it year after year developed?

I have some additional questions. What might some alternatives be for girls in
small rural areas without easy access to a university? What sorts of services
might universities provide the middle school and high school teachers to:
(a)convince them to change what they do, if needed; and (b) help them to change
what they do, when they become convinced?
