I hope you all will read this incredible article on the front page of The New York Times today, about the plight of women in the world, particularly the developing world. As someone who writes about food and health, I don’t want to ignore the fact that I am LUCKY and blessed to have been born in a country and into a family where I had the opportunities, education, and resources to go to school and to build a safe and healthy life for myself. I feel lucky to be able to have food on my table everyday and to be able to access and use a computer. I have traveled quite a bit in the developing world, and have worked with a number of immigrant women in this country, and I know that not all women are as lucky as I have been. How crazy is it that ONE PERCENT OF THE WORLD’S LANDOWNERS ARE WOMEN?
But I believe this is something we ALL can do something about- the world can and will change if we each do small things to make the world a better place for all. 🙂
