Good News for Women in Africa, Catholic Woman Speaks Truth to Power in US

Two great articles found in my inbox today:

1.) Togo becomes the fifteenth African country to ratify the African charter on human rights. This charter guarantees many rights for women, including the right to an abortion in the cases of rape, incest, or endangerment of a woman's life or health and legal prohibition of female genital mutilation.

2.) Rabble Rousing, by Rose Marie Berger on civil disobedience at the White House and saying "NO!" to war. Particularly uplifting as get ready to leave for the annual vigil to close SOA/WHINSEC outside Ft. Benning tomorrow morning. Shut it down, yo!
