BENEFITING: Pathfinder International
ORGANIZER: Pathfinder International
EVENT: Half the Sky Movement
Reading Half the Sky by Sheryl WuDunn, I was shocked by the violence and oppression inflicted on women and girls around the world (forced prostitution, sex trafficking, gender-based violence). While tragic, the book offers hope that help is possible. The book explains how helping women improves the economic stability of a country, decreases family sizes, which ultimately brings down poverty and violence. This issue is not just a "women's issue", it's a global issue. I hope you will help me in my cause. Pathfinder International provides much needed reproductive health services that help expand opportunities for women, ultimately improving the lives of everyone in the community.
