A tribute to my mom and how shea impacts women like her all over west Africa

My mother, Maimouna Soudre, now 76

In recognition of International Women’s Day, I honor my mother and other women in the rural areas of West Africa who collect Shea nuts as a source of income. Without them, no one would have the Shea we use to protect and soothe our skin or the Shea that is used in all the chocolate candy bars we eat – Snickers, Kit Kat, Hershey’s and many others!
