Today is International Women’s Day. But for millions of women in the world struggling to overcome poverty, survival is the day’s only reward.
Women like us have the power to make a difference. When we all work together, we make the world better for ourselves and for women we don’t even know. Women who – like us – are striving to build a healthier, more secure future for themselves and their families. So, let’s celebrate our sisters around the world whose grit, ingenuity and dignity are an inspiration and a force for change.
It doesn't take money, just a mouse click.

At least this year I'm not forced to wear an ugly pagne.

YAY Women! I met with my lab technicians today and they asked if we could start analyzing pregnancy exams in the clinic labs rather than our office lab. Our head lab guy said this is not possible because it endangers women who are pregnant out of wedlock. They risk being killed. They then discussed other reasons why it is better to do the analysis in the office lab. I didn't get the whole protection factor in the office thing, but they all agreed it was safer that way, and so that was how we made our decision that we continue to do the analysis in the office lab. As I confirmed we would continue analysis in the office lab I started to tear up and quickly asked someone if they had other questions before I cried in front of everyone.
