I never thought I'd link to Glamour Magazine, but...

They have nominated a union janitor from Houston, TX as one of their women of the year. Why? Despite battling breast cancer (with no health insurance), Ercilia Sandoval knows that standing up for herself and her coworkers is better than facing her disease in isolation. Solidarity beats apathy every day of the week.

And hats off to Glamour for highlighting women who aren't just engaged in philanthropy, but who are engaged in the forefront of fighting for change in their communities. It's too often the Ercilia's of this world are overlooked.
