Brandeis Leadership Alliance Member Quoted in Boston Globe

Jesse Mostipak, President of Brandeis University Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance, was recently interviewed by the Boston Globe, voicing her opposition to the Taliban's brutal treatment of women in Afghanistan. The Brandeis University Leadership Alliance is one of over 69 action groups that have joined FMF's recently launched Back To School Campaign. This latest campaign is aimed at improving educational opportunities for Afghan women and girls through scholarships to U.S. universities, an adopt-a-school project to support clandestine home schools for girls in Afghanistan and refugee camp schools in Pakistan, and a petition drive to pressure the U.S. and U.N. to increase aid to the region. To get involved, contact a Field Representative today. http://www.feminist.org/afghan/back2school.asp
