Last month, more than 150 Kenyan girls made legal history. In a country where the rape of young women is rampant, this group sued the Kenyan government for failing to protect them. And they won.

Mercy Chidi is a Kenyan social worker and advocate for young rape victims. Her group, Ripples International, is funded in large part by the Stephen Lewis Foundation and its Grandmothers to Grandmothers charity.

T
he Sherbrooke chapter of Grandmothers for Grandmothers will be hosting a talk by Mercy Chidi this weekend in North Hatley. We've reached Mercy Chidi this morning in Toronto.
