I got very emotional when I read this article. It's about a woman in Kenya who was so fed up with the terrors women face in her country that she created a villiage men weren't allowed into. This was very dangerous for her, and for all the women in the village. I wish I could fly out there and hug them all and tell them how courageous they are.
We can all help them by buying their jewelry. Most of the income of the villiage comes from selling their beaded artwork, which has been featured in the National Museum of Women in the Arts, and in many other prestigeous places. I like buying from them better than just giving them money because the ability to earn instead of recieve is so empowering.
