  This semester I have been enrolled in a class that revolves around feminism and the world of blogging.  Through this class I have been enlightened into just how slow the world as a whole has been to embrace women's rights. 

  This evening during a group chat my professor gave me the advice to write about what makes me angry.  Truth is I spend a lot of my time diffusing the anger of others, and rarely feel it myself. 

  With that being said there has been a website that really makes me angry and inspired all at the same time.

http://www.madre.org/

  This website's mission is to advance womens human rights by meeting urgent needs in communities and building lasting solutions to crisis.  In exploring this website my eyes were opened to a whole new world of feminine trials and successes.  It gives you the opportunity to follow stories of hope, and donate to make a difference. 

  During our class this evening I realized that a group like this needs each and every person it inspires to pass the word along and promote awareness.  I realized I had an obligation to spread the word.  I hope that this blog reaches at least one person that will click on the link and learn what they can do to help women around the world!
