I'm fundraising for @bcimagirl. $1000 by Oct 11, the Day of the Girl. Pretty reasonable goal right? Right!

Let's face it, being a woman isn't always rainbows and unicorns. But, nevertheless, I'm proud of who I am and I know I'm pretty lucky to be female in the US (Of course we've got some issues but really, things ain't that bad for us.)
I was able to go to school.
I was allowed to work and choose my own profession.
I can drive a car.
And I know that when the time comes, I can marry whoever I want. (yeah, keep your comments to yourself, I'm workin on it)
But I know that life isn't the same for women around the world.
Did You Know...
