Women Are Change Agents

Women Are Change Agents

“When women have access to education, capital and health care, they not only improve the well-being of their own families but the stability of their communities.  When you educate a woman, she teaches her family.  Give a woman a micro-grant so she can start a small business in her home and she will buy shoes, milk and books for her children with the profits.”

Karen Hughes, Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs, at the International Women’s Leadership Conference in Honolulu on August 29, 2006.
