Some Inspiring Women of 2021

Among those inspiring us this year has been Sister Ann Rose Nu Tawng of Myitkyina, the capital of Chin state, Myanmar, who showed incredible courage in the face of great danger on February 28, 2021 when she went down on her knees and spread out her arms before the security forces, pleading with them not to attack the unarmed protesters sheltering in the clinic where she serves the sick.

The 45 year old Sister is among “100 Women” – a BBC multi-format annual series that examines the role of women in the 21st century. May the following account of the strength and gentleness of these women offer us hope as we consider the many challenges of our world in 2021- 2022.
