I liked this article very much. However, I do not agree with Dorothy's statement that "Only when women are healthy and empowered can they raise and educate healthy children." After all, for centuries many women have been unhealthy and disempowered, and yet they HAVE been able to raise and educate healthy children -- at the expense of their own health, of course. There are thousands of examples of this in my own developing Latin American country, as I'm sure there are too in other nations. While it's crucial to advocate for improvements in women's health, education and overall social status, I feel it's also important to do justice to all these women who have nonetheless done the best possible job under their extreme, day-to-day circumstances.
