In a field still dominated by men, Kathleen Flynn’s photographic investigation of the Liberian charity More Than Me on the eve of its collapse is both mesmerizing and haunting.

Founded by American Katie Meyler, More Than Me promised to rescue some of the world’s most vulnerable girls from life on the streets, but from the very beginning, children placed under its care were being raped by one of the nonprofit’s leaders.

We’re choosing to celebrate Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day because, in addition to raising awareness around women’s issues, The Gathering Place helps women every day. We are metropolitan Denver’s only daytime shelter for women, children, and transgender individuals experiencing poverty and homelessness. While we refer to those we serve as members, all of our programs and services are free, and they always will be.

Celebrate Women’s History Month by supporting the women we serve! Give now. And be sure to share this article with your friends so they can join the celebration.
