Isabel Allende’s Heroes:

February 7, 2008

“Women who care for others, support their families, struggle with poverty, abuse and repression, and also manage to love and sing in spite of all the odds.”

“We believe that if we empower a woman, we save a family, and if we help families, the community at large benefits. By empowering women we can change the world. An empowered woman will educate her children and raise strong daughters.”  

–Author Isabel Allende, whose Isabel Allende Foundation supports Chilean and San Francisco Bay Area non-profits such as Homeless Prenatal, Women’s Recovery Services and Mujeres Unidas y Activas.
