Inspiring

Your post was lovely and inspiring. You are right, we often look at statistics and feel hopeless, but we forget the greatest number being the one you just mentioned - 3 billion women. Thank you for reminding all of us of that fact :)

Women and Literacy

Literacy is the key to access technology for women, and you have clearly pointed the way towards change is with these essential tools. Keep your voice strong and work hard to make your dreams come true!

Education

Yes, education is at the core of solving so many social problems. As you point out, the problem is often a chicken-and-egg one, however, where in order to access education, women must be safe, valued and empowered and the only way to reach those goals is to have access to education....

I'm glad you are working to disrupt the destructive cycle by speaking out.

Yours,
JT Long

Dear JR,

You obviously feel strongly about the need for cultural change for women. Let your powerful voice be a proponent of change. Best of luck to you,
