TEDxJohannesburg - Glenda Tutt - 11/15/09

Glenda Tutt had a problem. And did something about it, for all women who experience her situation. Her talk is entitled "It's a Chick Thing". Communities affected by poverty are largely held together by women and CBO's run by women. Women living in these communities do not have access to adequate sanitary ware (tampons/pads), if any at all. School girls miss substantial parts of their education, unable to leave their home for five days a month. Part of uplifting communities is solving problems at the most basic level.
