Medical Mission Sisters, Associates and partners in mission share a deep concern for the rights, health and welfare of all women and girl children.  Some are joining the “Women’s March” in Washington, DC; Philadelphia; and other cities this weekend to “stand with” women of all races, faiths, ages and nationalities in expressing the importance of treating women with dignity, respect and as equals with men.  As the March organizers have stressed, there can be no true peace in our nation and our world without justice and equity for all.
