By highlighting incidents of women around the world who are oppressed, abused, tortured and murdered, I hope to make a significant contribution to a movement toward change.
In March 2010, Harriet and her husband Bill co-founded the Haiti Jewish Refugee Legacy Project blog. To date, it has received over 102,000 views from readers in 179 countries. Initially, the focus was on Holocaust survivors who found safe haven in Haiti. As the blog expanded it covered other subjects on several Pinterest boards.
Building on the Pinterest boards Spotlight on Women and Violence, on June 1, 2014, Harriet began a new blog, Spotlight on Women and Violence with the first Tikkun Olam Award given to Laura Dunn. Click HERE to see the most recent Pinterest pins that have been posted related to Women and Violence.
