Another HBGD Post!

Look what you find from just mulling around the internet! It turns out the African Union as adopted 2010-2020 as the African Women’s Decade!  On July 31, which was African Women’s Day, approximately 100 women gathered in London to celebrate the positive changes that have been made thus far in regards to the rights of African women, and the next decade is to encourage “…African states to take action regarding women’s rights.”

This is such good news that I had to share with you guys.  Read more about this here, along with a story about a woman who’s rights were almost taken away from her 10 years ago when her husband died.  Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
