Years ago, in what she calls a moment of brilliance or insanity, Karen Sugar decided to start an international development organization for women. Sugar began by looking for a location where women had the most critical need for empowerment, but she soon realized that the location wasn’t as important as the bond between women. “It didn’t matter where I went, because I know as women we’re all connected,” Sugar explains. “As women, we all have similar experiences as we walk the planet, whether it’s discrimination or abuse, physical or emotional. Although our lives look different, we can relate to being a woman.”
