Isabel Allende: Novelist/Feminist

Isabel is one of my favorite writers. Her stories speak of women and their hardships from all over the world. She is the promoter of passion in women. She encourages people to stop and take notice of what is happing in this world. Some stats from her video:

80% of the worlds refugees and displaced people are women and children
2/3 of the world's work is done by women, women own less than 1% of the worlds assets
For every $1 given to women's programs $10 is given to men's programs

Pleas watch this video! It is such a pleasure to be exposed to Isabel,
