In honor of Day of the Girl - Wait, one lousy day?! - we salute global efforts (none involving talk of pussy) to improve female lives, from school campaigns to fight sexual assault to books about women scientists to a new Babies Act mandating changing tables for men. Mostly we salute Sandra Aguebor, gritty founder of Nigeria's Lady Mechanic Initiative, which has trained hundreds of dispossessed women, "transforming a life from nowhere to somewhere." "Skills change lives," says the country's first Lady Mechanic. "Now she has a voice and a future."
Great stories, Abby, thanks for sharing.
