This is what can happen when women take action. This is an amazing TED Talk and shows how women can overcome impossible odds by DOING what has to be done. These women are incredible. They see 3 to 4 hundred patients a day, do 10 to 20 surgeries and manage a town with 90,000 people. There are a few men in the town. If a man beats his wife he is put into jail and if some authority doesn’t take him away he NEVER gets out. Watch this. These women didn’t hope that the lives of women in their country would change. They did something to bring about that change.

  1. Yes, WOW! Action is the only thing that makes a difference. Amazing women and look what they have to work with. Still, they do it and they matter and make a difference and on top of all the medical treatment and the lives they save they work against violence against women. I love them. I wish there was an address where we could sent them money, to help with food and supplies. Maybe I’ll try and find out if there is a place. I’ll let you know.
