    Deirdre, what an original post, and I love getting to know your daughter a little through this. Seems to me she is growing up to be just as remarkable as her mother (I still can’t believe you have a 16-year old daughter when you look about 16 yourself!). Thanks so much for sharing Oxfam America’s (client) campaign with your readers – you are the epitome of a strong woman who’s changing the world every day.

    Deirdre, thank you so much for this post and raising awareness about Oxfam America’s International Women’s Day campaign! I think it’s so powerful for you to include your daughters perspective and she sounds like a pretty enlightened 16 year old. And she is absolutely right about the need to feel a connection to the issue of hunger and poverty, it’s something we strive to do all the time here at Oxfam. Thanks to you and your daughter for this powerful piece!

    Shonali…thank you so much for your very kind words. I think together we’re all making a difference. I’m so happy that you introduced me to Oxfam America and it was absolutely our pleasure to participate in a blog post. My daughter will be thrilled to see your comment. Thanks again!
