One of the reasons why I do things like Women's History Month: http://prospect.org/article/do-women-count People who face disadvantages don't need just one kind of support - getting individuals noticed, getting society to see things differently, changing the way we see things ourselves - there are so many ways of doing all this. And of course it isn't just women. But I learned the hard way that one can't be there for everyone, all the time. The other thing I learned the hard way that it's not very rational to spend all one's life promoting the needs of others, and, in the process fail to achieve one's own dreams.
