There’s a fantastic article in The Christian Science Monitor about the role of women in Sudan’s Darfur region.
Apparently, it was the women who, amid the death and destruction, stepped up and spoke out against the atrocities taking place so the international community and NGOs would know just how brutal the situation really was. Of course, spreading the word comes with price. The women risked arrest or worse—and their families weren’t safe either.
You can check out the story here and be really glad that we can protest any situation with our blogs, our voices, our T-shirts or whatever makes us happy.
