Getting Girls to School in Africa
You may squick at the subject, but it is an important one. Nick Kristof in this blog post talks about feminine hygiene and how it is a bar to girls going to school in Africa, and about an innovative idea that is trying to solve it. It would never have occurred to me, where there are easy solutions for the problem available, that this could be such a problem. Thanks to Kristof for publicizing problems and their possible solutions.
