If you think that fighting for the rights of women is something that doesn’t need to be done, today, then you are sorely wrong.
When you see what it’s like for far too many young women in rigidly patriarchal societies, you get a glimpse of how much more work needs to be done in some parts of the world.
In this short documentary, we follow a young girl in India by the name of Monika who has joined 40,000 other girls in West Bengal who have joined a micro-agriculture program.
It’s so inspiring…
This program has been effective and I am sure we will see much more profound results in the next ten to twenty years. Considering that half of all girls in India are married before age 18, it is vital that these kind of programs continues to swell with support.
Standing up for the rights of women and valuing them as equal human beings—protecting them even—has a ripple effect that even dampens things like sex trafficking.
To value a young women is to value the future.
