Empowerment Project

I am constantly blown away by the women I'm friends with. For example, check out this project my friend Alina is starting:

http://www.alinabklein.com/2012/02/empowerment-project.html

She'll be posting submissions (artwork, poems, quotes, etc.) that empower rape survivors. How amazing is that? Alina is a rape survivor herself, but more important than that, she is brave and strong and funny and smart. The project will run a weekly post, and it's a way for other rape survivors (or really anyone interested in such an important issue) to share their stories and to have a place where they can find strength and joy.

I couldn't be more proud of what she is doing.
