Sheryl Sandberg. Hillary Clinton. Malala Yousafzai. Oprah. Even Taylor Swift. These names pop up when you Google "women changing the world." Depending on your politics and point of view, you may agree that these influencers have broken stereotypes, raised global awareness for critical issues like energy and education, and/or served as role models for girls. What about Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy? Etheldreda Nakimuli-Mpungu? Kiran Gandhi? Have you heard of them? Probably not. But they deserve a Google shout-out too. They are a few of the unsung women making strides in the developing world. In honor of International Women's Day and Women's History Month, this NPR article shines a light on some amazing women around the world.
