Molly Melching, Founder of Tostan, Joins Denver Frederick
We all try to change our own behavior – it’s hard. Or we may attempt to modify that of our child – that’s even harder. And what about trying to sway a friend or an acquaintance with different political beliefs to look at things the way you do? Well, we all know that’s impossible. So what then about changing long-standing social norms, steeped in history and tradition, of an entire community? As daunting as that may sound, it’s what my next guest and the organization that she founded has done around issues such as human rights, female genital cutting, and child marriage. She is Molly Melching, the Founder of Tostan.
