Women: can't live with them, can't live without them

Many men think it's quite difficult to live with their nagging spouses, demanding girlfriends, or posturing moms.

Some women, they find it difficult, if not impossible, to live. Period.

From ONE.org and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation:

1 IN 7 WOMEN die in pregnancy and childbirth in Niger. In the United States, the risk is 1 in 4,800.

EVERY MINUTE a woman dies in pregnancy or childbirth.

80% OF MATERNAL DEATHS could be prevented if women had access to basic maternal health services.

IN SOUTH AFRICA, young women are three times more likely to be infected with HIV than young men.

Let's make it more than just one happy day for the women the world over; let's make the joy of women last for more than a month, more than a year.

Here's one way to do this.
