March 23, 2012

Plan International USA President/CEO Tessie San Martin was included in the fourth edition of Mediaplanet Publishing’s Investing in Women and Girls publication series. As part of the Panel of Experts, Tessie shared Plan’s views on how investing in girls is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty throughout the world.

The publication raises awareness of the potential women and girls have as the world’s greatest untapped resource, highlighting their empowerment as crucial to achieving global economic progress, political stability and greater prosperity for the world.

Reaching over 3 million readers, Investing in Women and Girls will be distributed as a special sixteen-page section within USA Today in parts of New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Philadelphia and Washington D.C.

With contributions from key opinion leaders like Secretary Hillary Clinton, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, Ambassador Melanne Verveer, and Editor in Chief of Newsweek and The Daily Beast, Tina Brown, the publication inspires readers to become a part of this worldwide movement.
