This Sunday (March 8th) is International Women’s Day, so it seemed a fitting time to launch our new profile series: Women of Dignity.
I’m thrilled for the number of women who are currently in the spotlight for their accomplishments and leadership roles (Ariana Huffington, Sheryl Sandberg, Emma Watson, to name a very few). As women, they have a perspective unique from men; as women of power, they have great ability to influence, lead, direct, & embolden others for good. For this, I am very thankful.
But, I also know that beyond the limelight are millions of women around the world, living quiet and unknown lives, nonetheless filled with dignity and value. Moms, Teachers, Business Owners, Seamstresses, Artists, Daughters.
Each woman (& man!) in this world is a precious creature, valued not by our popularity, our visibility, what we produce, or even our roles. We have value, simply because we are.
Today, I introduce you to one such woman.

Location: Mirpur, Bangladesh
