Women's Day is the story of ordinary women as makers of history; it is rooted in the centuries-old struggle of women to participate in society on an equal footing with men.
In the world's least developed countries, many of which are at war, women are 300 times more likely to die in childbirth or from pregnancy-related complications than in developed countries, according to UNICEF. While armed conflicts and other violence affect entire communities, women are particularly at risk of rape and other forms of sexual violence. Because of insecurity or because they have no means of transportation, it is often impossible for women to reach a health-care facility to give birth safely.

Washington Post profiled Jean Kabre, a concierge at a DC office building and a charismatic guy who befriended the entire building. So much so that, as people watched him drain his paycheck every week to keep dozens of relatives in Burkina Faso from starving, they began making their own contributions. Starting with a pump to replace the village's muddy drinking-water hole, they now have an ambitious plan to feed, house, educate and help the people of Tintilou to start their own business grinding grain.

Kibera, Kenya 
It is the largest of Nairobi's slums, and the second largest urban slum in Africa, with an estimated population of between 800,000 and 1.2 million inhabitants. Encompassing an area of only 2.5 square kilometres (1.5 square miles), Kibera accounts for less than 1% of Nairobi's total area, but holds more than a quarter of its population, with over 1,250 people crowded into each acre of land. There is more to this story, however--the courage and dignity of the people living there.
