Hello, Fair Readers!
My next piece on Fem2pt0 was posted today. You can see the article here.
The article discusses a recent report which ranked India as the 4th out of 5 most dangerous countries for women. The other are: Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Pakistan, and Somalia. You can see info-graphics summarizing the report here.
As many of you know, an issue important to me while I was in India was discussing the status of women. Every time I think about my students, I remember how lucky I am, and why I do the work that I do.
I'm excited by the opportunity to write for Fem2pt0 about international women's issues. I think I add a missing voice to their blog, and takes me one step closer to my goal of being a real development writer.
If you have comments on the blog, positive or negative, please feel free to leave them as public comments on the article.
Thanks to all for your support, and stay tuned for a new blog post. Topic TBD by whatever life throws at me!
