<3 Never forgotten! "Now young women, they were among 276 girls kidnapped by Islamist militants in 2014, and have spent months undergoing rehabilitation therapy. {...} More than 100 of the schoolgirls kidnapped from Chibok remain in Boko Haram captivity."

#FemaleEntrepreneurs #BeBoldForChange #OutWithAgeism #YouCanDoIt!
"{...} 50-plus women are often more agile and more adept at multitasking, because that’s what we have had to do over the last decades of our lives, juggling caring for older relatives with bringing up younger children. Home and work. It makes you nimble in your mindset. Nothing can replace experience, knowledge and wisdom, and you can’t buy them or study for them at university.”

We SALUTE THE COURAGE of these Syrian women who are telling their stories in the hope of justice.
WARNING: this article contains distressing content: "The physical and mental scars from detention will affect these women for the rest of their lives. Many feel shame, and their relationships with their families and communities has changed because of the stigma attached to sexual assault and rape. Their hope is that shedding a light on what happens in Assad’s detention centres will amount to international pressure to allow inspectors into the country and thus stop the government acting with impunity. What their testimony also means, however, is that officials in Syria’s government, police and military could be held accountable for their actions in potential future war crimes trials."

#MUSTREAD #EndingViolenceAgainstWomen
W4 had the honor of interviewing award-winning photographer Walter Astrada about his work around the world and his six-year project documenting violence against women.
"After her recovery, Mama Masika resolved to open a center to help other women survivors of rape. You can see her, in my photo, writing in a book. Every day she writes down the testimonies of all the women who have been raped and who come to her center for the morning-after pill, anti-HIV prophylaxes, and support. For me, this woman is just amazing.” - Walter Astrada

#TheW4CommunityRocks #BeBoldForChange WE LOVE THIS PIC! Any idea what is SUPER SPECIAL about this pic, even if it's blurry (our apologies)? Well, it's the first time ever these women from the tribal zones in Pakistan have had access to computers and are benefitting from computer training! They are participants in W4's IT and entrepreneurship training program in Pakistan which is enabling women to harness computers, the Internet and social media to run small-scale businesses. As you might imagine, access to computers and IT training for these women is life-changing! Find out more about this program and how you can get involved & Happy Saturday!
