          This issue is dedicated to women, featuring stories written by women, about women, and their challenges. These narratives illustrate the determination and perseverance needed by woman to realize their objectives, ultimately leading to triumph. Anne Frank said: “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” To all women who couldn’t wait to improve the world, we celebrate you! Adelante!
