Fairfield University Jesuit comments on U.N.’s ‘Day of the Girl Child’

On the eve of the United Nation’s observance of the International Day of the Girl Child on October 11, 2013, Jesuit priest Rev. Richard Ryscavage, S.J., director of Fairfield University’s Center for Faith and Public Life (CFPL), applauded the U.N. initiative, which focuses on the pivotal need to educate girls as “a moral imperative that we must embrace, and be prepared to do the time-consuming and sensitive ground work where there is resistance to change.”
