Why Women’s Rights Are Your Business: The Dollars and Sense of Investing in Women and Girls.

Eleanor McCloskey, CND

Sally Armstrong, human rights activist, journalist, author, presented to a packed house at St. Thomas University, Fredericton, NB this week. Her dynamic true stories – from her work in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Somalia, Kenya, Congo and elsewhere show how women can change the face of poverty and effect change. Sally says the use of the internet has brought women together from all over the world, and when women communicate and share stories, things happen. I have heard her tell these stories before but the passion and strength she gives them is always worth a revisit. Ascent of Women (2013) and Uprising: A New Age is Dawning for Every Mother’s Daughter (2014) tell Sally’s direct experience of the courage, tenacity and wit of women around the world who are shaking established ways – cultural and religious – of holding women back from education and progress.
