My bead bud, Margot Potter, writes about more than just beads at her blog, The Impatient Beader. Recently she has a post, entitled "This Is Important Period," about a group of young women that really could use some help from other women.
I don't think I can explain it as well as Margot, who is a wonderful and inspiring writer, so I'm not even going to try.
Go, read, help...
P.S. A BIG thank you to Margot who is gutsy enough to write about this sort of thing.
