In March, No Ceilings: The Full Participation Report, a joint effort from the Clinton Foundation and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, was released. The report details both the gains made in gender equality since the UN Conference on Women in Beijing in 1995 as well as obstacles that limit the full participation of women and girls all over the world. The report highlights obstetric fistula as a maternal morbidity that could be prevented with greater access to health care including family planning.
