In many developing countries, a widowed woman faces dire economic and social conditions. Fifty percent of the estimated 100 million widows in the developing world are impoverished, and 10% of widows' children will die before age 5 due to lack of access to resources. Upon the death of a husband, widows are often stripped of their property, given negligible access to the job market, and suffer harsh social stigma. Though these problems have reached epidemic proportions, they are hardly acknowledged by developed nations. Windows for Widows co-founder Heather Ibrahim-Leathers comments on the epidemic of widowhood and explains what can be done to help.
