Annie Lennox - Annie Lennox Speaks At Summit For Family Planning

Singer Annie Lennox has urged U.K. officials to improve global access to contraceptives by attending The London Summit on Family Planning.
The event brings together world leaders to discuss ways to improve women's rights by supplying developing countries with important information, services and supplies to reduce the number of unplanned pregnancies.
And to support the movement, the Walking on Broken Glass hitmaker celebrated the summit's efforts during a grand-opening ceremony with her daughter Tali on Tuesday (10Jul12) and joined meetings about health care and female empowerment at the convention on Wednesday (11Jul12).
In a post on her official website, the star writes, "The London Summit on Family Planning is an incredible step forward for women in developing countries. For years, a lack of vision on access to family planning has literally cost the lives and future opportunities of millions of women and girls. This global movement - to halve the number of women and girls who want to avoid pregnancy but don't have access to contraception - is, I hope, the first step towards giving all women a fair chance in life."
