    Hm, there is no article when I click on the pic 🙁

    What do you think about my pic below? It makes me very sad and thoughtful. How often do we complain about our lives, not thinking about all the people in the world that do not have something to eat. Next time I have issues with my life, I’ll stop and think about those who have nothing!

    Have a nice day

      I had the same problem, Katrin.

      That pick you attached is so powerful and evocative. It is really jarring and snaps me back to the reality of how fortunate I am truly am to be living with basic necessities and luxuries while others are clinging on to the last bit of life that they have left.

        To be completely honest on a purely personal level (and with no insult meant): pictures of tiny, weak, black hands grasping strong, white hands make me uncomfortable as they evoke thoughts of the disgraceful “white man’s burden” philosophy. My personal post-colonial guilty hang-ups apart (I’m a white Englishman), it is a very poweful photo, so thanks for sharing.

    *Fixed* http://thewip.net/contributors/2011/09/women_leaders_africas_availabl.html <– that's the link!

    And I think is true, women are who raise children, so they play an important part in their education, and because of that, in the men and women they are becoming.
    Of course women should neither be the only gender that raises children, nor the only influence that they have, but in the particular case of Africa, the idea could work just perfect.

    I feel so lucky to live in a society where equality is (or should be anyway) the norm. It is fantastic to read that women are now starting to be encouraged to fight to be treated as equals in more countries, however equality should already be absolute everywhere.

    the link doesn’t seem to work for me, so naturally I’m now really curious to read it:)

    Hi Allison. This article is very inspiring. If each human takes his place in the society, we will do a great step. <3
