Heroic, Female and Muslim: Dr. Hawa Abdi
Congratulations Correspondents on completing the first assignment! Reading about the strong female leaders in each of your countries has been enthralling and deeply moving. I came across a New York Times op-ed by Nicolas Kristof (co-author of "Half the Sky") and want to share it with all of you. Dr. Hawa Abdi is a truly inspiring leader in Somalia and a woman we should all know about! Check it out here: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/12/16/opinion/16kristof.html?src=me&ref=home...
