Last night I attended a conference in Bellevue called Women of Vision, based around the book “Half the Sky”.
I’ve mentioned before what an important read this is, not only for women but everyone who is interested in human rights.
The book follows husband and wife throughout the world not only touching, but gouging subjects such as genital cutting, honor killings, forced prostitution and human trafficking and the mass rapes that occur worldwide.
Keys to lowering the levels of these atrocities are found through education, micro loans, funding from outside sources, and again, education.
I urge you all to read this, be moved, and help in any way you can move towards change.
Brooke Miller and I will be hosting events in the future to help aid in the small ways we can. If you’re interested in helping, just message one of us.
