520    Two Pulitzer Prize winners issue a call to arms against 
       our era's most pervasive human rights violation: the 
       oppression of women in the developing world.  They show 
       that a little help can transform the lives of women and 
       girls abroad and that the key to economic progress lies in
       unleashing women's potential.
