“Lean on the world to save women and girls,” says Kathleen Parker, a Washington Post writer, whose column was reprinted in the April 10, 2013, issue of the Dallas Morning News.
Parker recently sat next to Sunitha Krishman at the fourth annual Women in the World summit. Sunitha is a former Hindu nun who rescues girls and women from the sex slave trade in India. “Though she has been beaten for her work, she perseveres for such beneficiaries as the 8-year-old girl who was locked in a room with a snake until she submitted to prostitution,” Parker writes.
“Fighting for women and girls isn’t “a nice thing to do. It isn’t some luxury that we get to when we have time on our hands,” former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said at the summit. “This is a core imperative for every human being and every society.”
