Working with women

Shekaiba Bennet, a New Canaanite who is originally from Afghanistan, spoke during a St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church luncheon for seniors two weeks ago. She, along with Connie Tate, a World YWCA representative to the UN, and Elizabeth Titus, a professional writer working with the Afghan Women’s Writing Project and the SOLA school in Afghanistan, all spoke on recent efforts to improve the lives of women in the country, who often are denied a basic formal education.
