A crash course in changing the world.
I discovered a positive story when researching the website for this blog post. According to www.unwomen.org, there is an initiative going on in Papua New Guinea where the markets are being made safer for the women vendors and children.
Port Moresby is the location of a market where the vendors are about 80% women. These women were often harassed, were victims of violence, and were also forced to endure inadequate facilities. However, because of recent initiatives and women partnering with vendor associations, there have been many positive changes. One of the changes includes a complete refurbishment of the market.
