Rock The Red Pump…

In Daily Musings on January 30, 2012 at 2:20 pm

On March 10, the United States will recognize National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD). Launched by the Office of Women’s Health, NWGHAAD is a nationwide observance that encourages people to take action in the fight against HIV/AIDS and raise awareness of its impact on women and girls.

While great progress has been made in the area of HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment, women still represent 27% of all new AIDS diagnoses, with African-American women accounting for 66% of that group.

In observance of NWGHAAD, they are back with their 4th Annual Rock the Red Pump™ Campaign! he campaign’s goal is to generate conversation in blogosphere about the issue of HIV/AIDS and how it affects women. (please note text was taken from website.)

I will be posting more about this campaign closer to the date.

This Morning I Heard…

About the “Obedient Wives” club in Malaysia, while listening to NPR radio this morning.  Are you serious!! This is yet another misinterpretation of a holy book. A local women’s group is preaching Polygamy and the obedience of wives to their husbands.  Apparently this is a good way to deal with the social issues blighting Malaysia and a way to help cut down on the rising divorce rate in that country.  This story was amazing and entertaining to a degree to listen to, I won’t go too much into the story here, but please take 5 minutes (actually 4:08) to listen to the story on NPR, it’s an interesting listen and will remind us of how fortunate we are in the western world to not be dictated to in this way.  We are free spirited, fabulous, and intelligent woman who are able to excercise our God given freewill.
