Iraqi Women Embrace Political Power
I am in one accord with Christina Asquith's and Manal Omar's article on 'Iraqi Women Embrace Political Power'. I have long thought that when women have opportunity their families and communities they live in benefit. Investing in women is money well spent that quite reliably generates a good return. The only thing I might add to this well written article is mention of a couple of organizations that actively practice this important support of women in war-torn countries. These organizations are:
Women for Women International, http://www.womenforwomen.org/
and the Grameen Foundation, http://www.grameenfoundation.org/
These organizations effectively put feet and hands to the thoughts.
