Your advice and suggestions are welcome

Cultural obstacles

Hi, Passy! For sure you have a lot of evidences and experiences about women's rights violations. What I would like to read in your article is some cultural features and the pictures of real life which are specific for DRC, and of course what to do with all this.
Good luck! You chose a very interesting and very strong issue, probably sometimes very sensitive and even intimate.
You will do it the best!
Warmest greetings,

Dear Passy,

This is an enormously important subject and one which cannot get too much coverage. I understand that DRC is one of the most terribly difficult places for women, and I learned much from Neema Namadamu last year when I met her here in the US through World Pulse. So, to add your valuable, journalistic voice to those crying out from DRC is an excellent idea. To hear your personal perspective will be enlightening, indeed, and all the more crucial for your readers.

I look forward to reading your work.

With Support,


Sarah Whitten-Grigsby

Passy, your second assignment is a moving and emotional portrayal of the sorry conditions for women in the Congo. You have done such an excellent and passionate job in telling your story and standing in your truth of what you know is right and true for the women there. I share your deep concern and desire to make a difference by standing in our truth of what we know and speaking out for those who haven't been able to access their voices and stand together yet.

Blessings to you in your work...keep it are amazing! Elaine

I am during a class project on you and AIDPROFEN. Is there any way you can give me history on how and why you decided to do this project? What does AIDPROFEN do for the woemn in DRC? I believe you have an interesting story to tell other women.

Thank you! Darla Lecher
