Quote for Day: "A True Advocate for the Poor Must Be an Advocate for Women Because They Are to a Large Extent 'the Poor'"

Quote for today (from Questions from a Ewe):

Pope Francis says he’s an advocate for both the poor and women.  A true advocate for the poor must be an advocate for women because they are to a large extent "the poor."  A sincere advocate for the poor would also try to help alter the circumstances leading to poverty.  With women, this includes offering education and eradicating attitudes and practices defining women as dependent upon men.  This includes eradicating attitudes and practices that artificially limit women’s chances based upon gender.
