A recent field visit of PSI ( http://www.psi.org/ : a global health organization dedicated to improving the health of people in the developing world by focusing on serious challenges like a lack of family planning, HIV and AIDS, barriers to maternal health, and the greatest threats to children under five, including malaria, diarrhea, pneumonia and malnutrition) to India helped remind Minal Bopaiah, (Communications Manager, PSI) and Sophie Greenbaum (Graphic Designer, PSI) that beneficiaries are often the best advocates for the change they seek in the world.

They asked women in Patna and Lucknow “Why women and girls matter?” Their answers are both poignant and thought-provoking, illustrating that no woman is born without the desire to live with dignity and respect.
