National Review contributor and IWF?s friend, Myrna Blyth, has an excellent oped on NRO today highlighting some of the amazing women who were honored by the State Department as a part of International Women?s Day celebrations.  Myrna emphasizes the important role that women?s like these play in determining our future:  “The future of the Middle East perhaps depends more on improving the status of women than on any other factor.”  And the existence of women like these makes you feel a bit more optimistic about that future.
