Why Invest in Women by USAID #Women Completely shows how efficient and powerful women are
USAID has created this excellent infographic that shows why investing in womens health, education and empowerment leads to more prosperous and just societies: The original infographic can be accessed here and is part of a social exhibit with compelling photos, stories and infographics celebrating USAIDs 50th anniversary. To learn more
Why invest in women? Countless reasons, some of which are covered in this graphic. "Aid programs that provide women opportunities to better their health, education, and well-being have effects far beyond a single individual. A woman multiplies the impact of an investment made in her future by extending benefits to th world around her, creating a better life for her family and building a stronger community."
USAID: Why Invest in Women? Lifting a country's standard of living begins with ensuring an education for girls and young women.
Social Media Goodies / I love this infographic showing why women are the key to the future.

Women in the Olympics for the first time, every country competing has a female athlete.

The ad takes viewers through a dramatization of several Olympic athletes' upbringing]

We commend #London2012 Olympic runner Tahmina Kohistani for paving the way for other #Afghan female athletes and for having the true Olympic spirit! #olympics #empowerwomen
"But the Olympic Games provides a platform where, no matter where you are from, the challenges you face, or the social and economic barriers you encounter, everyone is on the same playing field. It doesn't matter if you're from Costa Rica or Comoros, every athlete has the opportunity to go for the gold."
Nike: "Voices" >The landmark Title IX legislation, which established gender equality in educational programs, had its 40th anniversary over the weekend. Perhaps the area where the impact of Title IX has been most felt is in the school gymnasium, where girls have since been guaranteed as many athletic opportunities as boys. A new ad by Nike gives viewers a one-on-one with some of the women who have benefitted from this historic legal precedent.
"Their amazing "Voices" ad campaign features female athletes and the prejudices they face. This is a big departure from the sexist coverage that women athletes usually face." via UltraViolet (weareultraviolet.org)

(gorgeous) Olympic Games in London 2012.
The 2012 Olympic Games was monumental for a variety of reasons, but for one reason in particular. It will mark the first time in Olympic history that every country will have at least one woman competing. It is the symbol of ultimate sports achievement portraying female success. This is the triumph for women and professional sporting as a whole.
AND first time in American history we've sent more women than men. #olympics2012 #empoweringwomen #girlsrule
Historic girl power at the Olympics! For the first time EVER Saudi Arabia is sending female athletes, and the US team has more women than men.

When Challenger 7 launched, she carried the first American woman into space: Sally Ride, who died today. When C7 landed, I was being born in Houston, TX, the Space City. Sally has been a role model & an inspiration my entire life. My 1st day of HS, I put my C7 mission patch on my backpack b/c I too was going somewhere big, new, & terrifying. “She inspired generations of young girls to reach for the stars.” - Barack Obama. I hope I never live in a world that doesn’t know & celebrate her legacy.

"There has been a lot of effort to demonize the word 'feminist.' I think that being a feminist means that you see the world whole instead instead of half. It shouldn't need a name and one day it won't. Feminism starts out being very simple, it starts out being the instinct of the little child who says "it's not fair" and "you are not the boss of me." It's something in us who knows that. And it ends up being a worldview that questions hierarchy altogether." -Gloria Steinem

The Challenge, Around The World
Sheryl Sandberg, TED talk: It's not because of lack of female potential. Women need to stop shooting themselves in the foot -- no more drawing back ten years early in anticipation of childbearing, for instance. Equally, though, she lists areas where we, as a society, need to improve. We need more equitable division of labor in the home, for example, if we want to see more equitable division of honors in the boardroom.
