Sending sanitary supplies so African girls can learn

When Libby Bruce in Ohio posted about feminism on Facebook she didn't expect it to reach half-way across the world.

But Diana Okello, an activist in Kenya, reached out to Bruce. Together the women have teamed up to bring needed supplies to young girls in Okello's home country.

Filmed and produced by Elena Boffetta
