If you’re a regular visitor you’ll know this blog supports Womankind. This is just a taste of what they do below so you can see why I hold them in high esteem:
We help women achieve change:
1. We help courageous individuals to challenge violence and discrimination
In some countries, this could involve accompanying a girl to a village meeting so she can tell women and men that it is now against the law for a girl to be forced to marry a man after he has raped her, and encourage girls to see they do have a choice.
2. We help women come together
In many different ways, we help women join together, often for the first time, to talk about what they want to change, and then we help them achieve it. This could involve providing training in how to resolve conflicts, or in leadership skills, so women are better able to challenge violence and speak up for better healthcare or education.
3. We help women claim their rights and improve their lives
We might provide legal help to enable a woman to obtain a divorce from a man who beats her, or work with the police to encourage them to help women rather than return them to their husbands.
Buy a Book and 100% of Profits go to Womankind!
I want to bring their excellent work to your attention. So, from now until end of 2012 every single penny made from the sale of my book When Work isn’t Working will go to Womankind. If you’ve been thinking about getting hold of a copy I hope this will prompt you into action.
Please do share this with your friends, enemies, family, work colleagues, anyone who hates their job, people you pass in the street (only joking on that one -sort of), and lets see if we can make a decent contribution to Womankind this summer and spread the joy to women everywhere!
If you don’t want the book either in download or paper, perhaps you’d consider donating directly via this link, or you can just get the book knowing Womankind will get the money, or you can even do both!
