Women and girls just not important in Asia and the Pacific

An article in SMH today by Virginia Haussegger about the missing millions of girls and women in China. Maternal mortality and a culture of abusing women in the Pacific.

All very confronting. Short of national action, ie trade sanction or aid tied to improved statistics, what can we do? We can give money to charities that help.

Oxfam, TEAR Australia, Plan Australia, Women for Women International, Unicef, World Vision, Medecins Sans Frontier. Pick a charity and give!
