    GRITtv: Lisa Shannon: A Thousand Sisters


    by GRITtv

    Lisa Shannon literally had her life changed by an Oprah show. She watched a program about the suffering of women in Congo and was inspired to do something. But each step wasn't enough--sending money, organizing a Run for Congo Women, getting in touch with other runners, even traveling to Congo to meet the women she was helping. Her new book, A Thousand Sisters: My Journey into the Worst Place on Earth to Be a Woman, details her transition from affluent businesswoman to dedicated activist in a global movement, and she joins Laura in studio to talk about Congo and what all of us can do to help.
