NYT: Saint Nich strikes with– Smart Girls vs. Bombs

Saint Nich strikes.

Julia Gillard

“As the first woman to serve as Australian Prime Minister, I know from my own life the transformative power of education. Now, as the Chair of the Board of Directors of the Global Partnership for Education I have seen the difference access to education makes for poor girls and boys. The terrorists understand the power of girls education. So should we. The world radically under invests in education and this year, as the global community defines the new sustainable development goals, is the time to step up and fix that problem. Campaigning for change by citizens will make a difference. My thanks go to Nicholas Kristof for continuing to inform as well as hopefully inspiring that vital campaigning.”

After 9/11, the United States overused military tools and underemployed two other kinds: girls’ education and women’s empowerment.
