Like much of the world, I haven't been able to take my eyes off of the unrest that's happening in Ferguson, Missouri. Social media has, once again, proven it's effectiveness in quickly disseminating information and fact-checking mainstream sources for an event that the history books will not forgot. While you're trying to keep up with what's going on, be sure to follow these women who are doing extraordinary work telling stories and keeping those of us who cannot make it to Ferguson abreast of what's happening on the ground.
