We have co-produced two fabulous educational workshops attended by over 400 children. In the Maasi Mara 98% of the little girls are brutally mutilated (FGM) and then sold into a life of slavery. Our 3-day workshops teach the boys and girls in all areas of HIV, FGM, hygiene, self-esteem, early childhood pregnancy, education and much more. Simultaneously, we hold a one-day workshop for the Maasai tribesmen and adult women. These workshops have a proven track record in a neighboring tribe. In just 5 years we have reduced the number of victims from 98% to 80%. We are saving lives and are committed with your help to continue this impactful work.

(WOMENSENEWS)— A lightbulb, maybe even an alarm bell, went off when I was showing the high school interns the office. We stopped in front of the framed photo of the moment on Oct. 1, 1991—a mere 24 years ago—when Barbara Boxer, then a member of the House, led five other female lawmakers up the steps of the Senate, demanding that it hold a hearing on Anita Hill’s sex-harassment allegations against Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. What happened after that had much of the country transfixed for a kind of reality TV episode that we had never lived through before.

Books have always been a true inspiration for movies, songs, theater shows, artworks and other forms of art. They inspire us to retrospect our lives, do good, and cherish what we have. Works of fiction or true life stories, they impact our lives in more ways than one. Here are two book recommendations that we know will have a major impact on your life.

As women are dominating the year, we can’t help but get excited. We’ve covered musicians to entrepreneurs and all the in between. This week, we’d like to take a look at three highly notable feminist artists who have made a dent in history with their works. At a time when gender equality is on the rise and power moves are being made, art is one of the most celebrated yet often underrated ways we, as women, have to fight back. Let’s dive into these artsy ladies!
The Internet has given us so much freedom. As our society continues to grow technologically, people are becoming more inclined to keep up with news and current events through social media platforms.
I was fortunate to meet this beautiful humanitarian, Gelila Bekele, when I was in New York recently. What a light she is... and what wonderful work she is doing. At 31 years she's founded 80 schools in Ethiopa. And she is sure to help us understand that the founding is just the beginning. It's the sustaining that makes true impact.
When I told her about our work with Women Like Us...she totally got it. We can't just drop in and do a little...we stick with the women we support and do what we can. Our support is ongoing...that's how you get it done, girls!
Gender equality and gender equity are related terms but have different meanings. While the words sound similar, the definitions and practical usage are different and need to be understood in today’s era of social justice.

I am so proud of Sonia Sotomayor, Supreme Justice and American Woman. Her dissent yesterday regarding the Muslim Travel Ban is an important statement to uphold our religious freedoms and the integrity of our country.
Gender equality is not only a part of American culture and society, but it is becoming increasingly accepted as a crucial part of modern industrialized culture and societies around the world. Educational institutions around the world are the beacons of knowledge and should be teaching new generations about gender equality and acceptance.
