S is for Stowe, Harriet Beecher Stowe

"So much has been said and sung of beautiful young girls, why doesn't somebody wake up to the beauty of old women?"
Harriet Beecher Stowe

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.
