Women’s Aid Organizations from Half the Sky

Women’s Aid Organizations from Half the Sky

See the faces of hope here.

Please take a moment to use the two links above and see how these organizations are helping women around the world to help themselves. While there, scroll down to see what the Washington Post book reviews and others are saying.

This link is provided by the publisher, Alfred P. Knopf, in conjunction with the release of "Half the Sky", one of the most important books of our generation. I hope you will add it to your reading list as soon as possible.

All women, at one time or another, have been at the least marginalized and at the worst, murdered. We all have benefited from a lifetime of sisterhood linking us to those who provide a helping hand; from a mother, a sister, a girlfriend, a teacher, or to an organization that through our combined solidarity, moves us forward.

Incredibly brave and resilient women who have survived the most unimaginable cruelty need our help. Please stand up and be counted so that our sisters can stand as well. They will never break the chain or abuse this trust. Their lives depend on it.

This post is Arizona Sky Blue - the same sky that covers and connects us all. Under it's canopy, all our futures are interwoven.
