" All my life I have been told that I was doing too much whenever I questioned the status quo. Being a Millennium Fellow will provide me with the guidance on how to advance my social welfare projects. It will also put me in contact with great thinkers from all spheres of life that will provide new perspectives to my work. It doesn't get any better than that! "

Millennium Fellowship Project: The Growing Feminist

The project is a blog that highlights women's issues in our modern world. It shows the place of women in society, and how this has largely held us back as a species.
