Sky’s the limit!

If you are doubting that one person can rock the planet take a look at this Guardian video of Melinda Gates. Ms Gates talks about how moved she has been by the stories of women around the world who have expressed the wish to have access to more reliable family planning.

It has been estimated that more than 150 million women world wide do not have access to birth control.

We should all applaud The Gates Foundation’s resolve and Melinda’s willingness to speak up although it may contradict her religious upbringing. She has given voice to women who would never have the audience she has earned.

Her stance is brave and will liberate many women she will never meet, from the hardships of continual pregnancy, and poverty that having too many mouths to feed brings.
