Quote for the Day

"Women are a tremendous force - if you empower them. They're as difficult to organize as doctors, but once you get them going they're unstoppable. Women are much more open with their feelings and the truth, and they're one of the golden keys to the salvation of this planet."

~ Helen Caldicott, Co-founder of the Physicians for Social Responsibility, Founder of the Women's Action for Nuclear Disarmament and the International Physicians to Save the Environment
