march 2009: Empowering women

Living in the U.S., it's easy to forget that women around the world are living in countries where women's rights are so restricted, they sometimes interfere with obtaining safety and stability. For many, being able to provide for their families can save them from living in poverty and being forced into prostitution or other kinds of slavery. This month's theme is: empowering women. Help us help the world's mothers, sisters, and daughters. the blog:
