Thinking like a social worker

…any questions? Yes. I have plenty.

Sunday Evening Share: Injustice Everywhere

on March 11, 2013

On Friday, the world celebrated International Women’s Day.  That same day I learned that  Zerlina Maxwell was harassed after saying men can prevent rape.  Seriously?!  As a social worker, do ever feel overwhelmed by the amount of injustice in the world?  If so, make sure to check out the social work section I will be including all March for Social Work Month.
