Charity Wallace: Seeking Equal Rights In the Arab World
Women’s Initiative Director Charity Wallace writes an op-ed on the importance of solidifying equal rights as the Arab Spring progresses, even in the face of tumult.  “As the Arab Spring progresses, strong constitutional commitments to democracy and human rights are essential for the region to enjoy the peace and prosperity its people deserve.” Wallace takes a look at the current situation of human rights in countries around the region and what progress is still necessary. “In the long run, democracy and the rule of law offer Arab society a strong foundation upon which to a build a bright future that's still consistent with the desires of its people, culture and history.”

Nancy Brinker's Mission: A Global Movement
Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon is highlighted in this article about the story of Susan G.
