On International Women’s Day, one mother’s struggle to stay alive

It’s International Women’s Day and social media is paying appropriate tribute to the women whom history has forgotten.

The New York Times today, for example, has unveiled a fascinating project to document the lives of women who were ignored by the Times when they died.

Meanwhile, NPR reporter Joanna Kakissis is today documenting the lives of women whom the world is ignoring while they’re struggling to stay alive.
