International Women’s Day

“If you educate a man, you educate an individual, but if you educate a woman, you educate a nation.”

Key areas that must continue to be addressed more aggressively for females globally include:

  • Human trafficking
  • Education
  • Poverty
  • Pre-natal Care
  • Aids
  • Rape/Violence

There are many good people here in the U.S. and globally that have initiated excellent projects to educate us all on the above. Think of Oprah and her school for girls in South Africa; think of the money-lending system, Kiva, in India and other countries empowering women with small loans to start businesses; think of the Clinton Global Initiative. Here’s a good site to visit today: International Women’s Day 2013.
