It’s a big world out there. Sometimes it can be overwhelming to even think about the inequalities and struggles for women in our own cities, let alone our world. But today I want to share some information about Sudan.

The women and children in Sudan have been suffering and paying the exorbitant price of war. Rape is hate and it must end.
This Sunday holds the long-awaited referendum on the separation of the North and the South. Let’s hold these women and children in our hearts and hope for a peaceful, fair and legitimate vote.
