In 2014, the fact that a pregnant woman is condemned to death because of her faith is outrageous and inhumane. From the comfort of your home, you can do something to save two lives: Meriam Ibrahim and her soon-to-be born child. For a start, you can sign this petition. If you read this article, you probably have a Twitter or a Facebook account. Spread the word and join us in our fight for justice.
We do not forget the schoolgirls in Nigeria who were abducted by Boko Haram. These two stories are reminders that we need to continue advocate for girls and women's rights. If you live in a country where you do not have to worry about yourself as a woman or to be concerned about your daughter, your sister, your relative, your wife or your female friend, consider yourself blessed.
Consider yourselves privilege to make a difference in the lives of millions of girls and women who are oppressed, abused because of their gender. Girls attacked in Nigeria by Boko Haram, a pregnant woman condemned to death in Sudan, will you stand for justice with us?
