2014 0729 gender equality

We are professional women 55+.  Most of us were active in the Women’s Movement.  We have traveled extensively in developing countries.  On the ground we’ve seen compelling evidence of the truth of the research, the profound difference it makes to society if mothers have food security for their children and sustainable futures for their families. We’ve been awed by the transformation of women who found opportunities to emerge from poverty and taken control of their own lives.  We’ve walked beside them and heard their stories.  We’ve seen their self-esteem grow, their leadership skills emerge and their voices heard.  We can help change the world for these women for decades to come by investing the same passion we summoned for our own battle for women’s equality.
