WLOX Editorial: The power of women

The power of women is quite evident in South Mississippi. Women in Jackson County joined a nationwide women build event in support of Habitat for Humanity. Dozens left their day to day jobs to hammer, saw and put walls in place. They are building homes to help those who need a home.

One volunteer said Habitat is a way to help people who deserve it. We agree and the volunteers deserve our admiration for their work. We salute those who joined the Women Build Project for both calling attention to the need for affordable housing and doing something about it.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
