Women can help fight against violent extremism, hunger, poverty, child malnutrition, poor health services, and illiteracy. They shoulder a disproportionate burden of social ills but display a greater economic return to aid. Happy International Women’s Day!
A couple of inspiring stories:
– The Girl Effect
– Women farmers are a force in fighting global food shortages
– The Women’s Crusade
– Last night, a 2009 Davidson grad came to speak about SAVE Global, Women without Borders. She is definitely one of the persons I look up to. She graduated with Greek titles, was the chair of Bonner Committee and she was also the coach when I was in the crew team. She is confidently pretty and fluent in German, French and English.
