Please watch the four video links posted below (the first is a TED Talk, the next two are YouTube videos, and the forth is embedded in the article itself) and write a short reflection paper (2 pages). What common through-lines do you see? How do these videos relate to the topic “Population” discussed in class? It will be due on Monday, February 25.
“A Warrior’s Cry against Child Marriage” https://www.ted.com/talks/memory_banda_a_warrior_s_cry_against_child_marriage (Links to an external site.) (Links to an external site.)

Instructions: A reflection paper is not a mere summary of the material (in this case the videos), but rather a reflection on how the material affected you (i.e. what have you learned, has it changed your mind on something, or supported something you felt strongly about already, has it raised questions, etc.). Use what you have learned from the videos to support your arguments, and organize your work the same way you would any other essay (title, introduction, main points, conclusion, references). For both the child marriage topic, as well as the maternal mortality topic, one video looks at a developing country and the other at a developed country. Please put your emphasis on the consequences of these stories to both local and global population.
