Kenyan women's rights advocate in Townships

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.

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.
