Though I disagree with the overall conclusions reached by the author, I must concur that today as women living in the West, we do have a lot more freedoms and opportunities. Much more than the Darfur refugee, the Haitian mother, the Afghan woman suffering from spousal domination, the Ethiopian girl; a mother much too early.
Today my struggles seem minor compared to these women and girls. Tonight I will have a delicious organic meal, sleep in a warm bed, rise in the morning and go to my "well-paying" (could be better :-)) job, laugh with my friends and family but I will not forget their struggles and I will remember them in my prayers.
To the Women of the World, Congratulations on your achievements, no matter how big or small!!
