Black women and ebola — let’s do something about this.

9 Oct

This evening I received an email from author Roslyn Holcom, which I reproduce as a screen shot below:

Roslyn Holcomb - What about our daughters - black women and ebola

Here are the links: from The Washington Post, “Ebola striking women more frequently than men,” and Gina McCauley’s Africare donation page.

You can also read what she has to say about this huge health emergency, and the impact is has on women, here.

Please tell me, how is it that so many of us don’t know that three out of four human beings who have died of ebola so far are WOMEN?

Please share this, and help do something about this silence and about the desperate need of all these women–and the families they leave behind.
