Save the Women Save the World
Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn weigh in with this powerful plea for women's rights.
In the 19th Century, the paramount moral challenge was slavery. In the 20th century, it was totalitarianism. In this century, it is the brutality inflicted on so many women and girls around the globe: sex trafficking, acid attacks, bride burnings and mass rape.
The world is awakening to a powerful truth: Women and girls aren’t the problem; they’re the solution.
I'm not going to add any yappy comments like I usually do.
All I'll say is, as I have mentioned before, I was raised by strong and proud women.
Sébastien taught me that I didn't have to fight to be a real man.
But the beautiful women in my life taught me just about EVERYTHING else.
If you're a guy you really need to read this article.
If you're a woman go for it sister.
Because I'm counting on you to save us...
