M is for Maathai, Wangari Maathai

"Women are responsible for their children, they cannot sit back, waste time and see them starve."
Wangari Maathai




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.

As a part of A-Z Challenge, the blog will host a photograph of a woman who survived, along with a quote by a famous (or not so famous) woman.

I love you photos. Combined with the words of women they are very moving.

Fascinating photos. Horrible statistics. Forms a lump in the pit of my stomach. Wonderful blog, keep up the great work.
