For anyone interested in these issues, I really recommend reading Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. Again - sad but important.
For something purely inspiring and hopeful on the issue of educating girls in the developing world, there is this great NY Daily News Article about a girl in India who graduated from university aged 13, and is about to start a master's. Wow. So - get reading,
PS - 700 views. Thank you :)
