A to Z blogging challenge

600,000 girls go missing in India every year- aborted before they are born; killed at childbirth; abandoned in infancy, allowed to die of mal-nourishment or lack of timely medical care.
I have been very erratic with my blogging this year, and was quite sure that I wouldn't be taking part in the A to Z blogging challenge in April. But then I decided to pay a tribute to the women who survived. Whatever the conditions they live in, they are Alive.  

Shivpur, Uttar  Pradesh
January 2011

Every day, during the month, the blog will host a photograph of a woman who survived, along with a quote by a famous (or not so famous) woman who's name begins with the letter of the alphabet.

Oh Rayna! So good to have you back! I've missed you. Until I was asked to co-host, I'd also been a very sporadic blogger. This challenge has lit a fire under my ass and I'm going full throttle right now! Looking forward to your work. Your theme sounds very special, and a cause I certainly support. My theme is Postcards from Sweden. I'll be sharing a vocab word a day, along with a picture, and short note. As in postcard length. I think that will be my hardest part...being brief. Stop by when you have a chance, one of the co-hosts, the awesome Jeremy, gave me a FREE blog make-over!
