Pathfinder Celebrates "Women Who Dare"

In Honor of International Women's Day 2013 on March 8


Women around the world dare every day. For them, it isn't about a holiday or special occasion. It's about seeing a need and working to make a difference. That's why Pathfinder will continue to honor "Women Who Dare" here past International Women's Day. Make sure to check back for new stories in the coming weeks!

Every day, women around the world dare.

They dare to dream and to lead. They dare to challenge the status quo. And they dare to speak out for those who lack the resources to advocate for themselves.

This International Women’s Day, Pathfinder celebrates women who dare at all levels.

From the woman who musters the courage to ask her husband to wear a condom counter to cultural practices to the woman in Parliament who demands affordable access to reproductive health services for the women who need them most, daring knows no scale or status.

We applaud the women who dare to tell the world that it's not doing enough. That it can do better for the world's billions of women and girls. That a frank and honest conversation about sexual and reproductive health is not something that can be ignored just because it's difficult to talk about.

Between now and International Women’s Day, dare to join us!
