Women are Dying...

This quote speaks to me of the choices we make in our world today – where the priorities are. Though it states diseases, it could also be said about violence we don't stop, social programs we don't provide, services we don't fund, and policy we don't make that protects and supports women:

“Women are not dying because of diseases we can’t treat….. they are dying because societies have not made the decision that their lives are worth saving. “

Dr. Mahmoud Fathalla - Egypt
