Journalist and Global Activist, Liz Stanton, founder of the Through Her Eyes Project is back on Worldview to talk about what she's doing lately:

"I'm taking time off right at the moment from the Through Her Eyes project this month to document the stories of 17 women from around the world who have come to the U.S. for a mentorship program run with the University of Tennessee, State Department, and espnW. It is called the Global Sports Mentoring [Program]. This is the second year of the program and there are participants from countries as far afield and different as Papa New Guinea and Poland.The stories of these women are compelling and amazing, from one of the few Pakistani women working to cover sports as a journalist in her country, to one of Nigeria's youngest elected officials, to one of Egypt's only female basketball leaders, and the challenges they face and the real dreams they have for their countries."
