One Billion Women Violated Is An Atrocity
One Billion Women Dancing Is A Revolution
I have been involved in many women’s groups over the years and beleive it is through empowering women across the world that the true healing will occur because we ARE healers! I travelled for over a year in several 3rd world countries where women are basically slaves. I got to know many of them and they were always grateful and kind to me. All I could think of was how lucky I was and that one day I would figure out a way to help them. And here is one perfect way of doing that. AWARENESS.
Please take a moment and think about 1 in 3. Look around at all the women you know and take one in three. Go ahead and pick them! Which ones would you choose? Your mother? Daughter? Sister? Your sunday school teacher? Your aunt? How about the woman down the street? Any one of your friends? I don’t know about you but that makes my stomach churn! Even though these statistics are weighing in heavier in other parts of the world it is frickin’ time to do something about it. And we have the perfect tool, The Internet.
Today the internet is the most powerful way to get information across the globe in seconds. A young brave student will upload video from her phone right in the middle of a violent situation and risk her own life to deliver information that will help her country! Awareness is key.
I have shared this information with everyone I know.
