There are few things in the world more depressing than the knowledge that a 65 year-old Somali gynecologist has bigger balls than you could ever hope to achieve even if you gave yourself steroid collagen injections to the scrotum every night and set up an induction port that allowed you to inflate them with an air pump like a basketball or those high-top sneakers from the early 90s.
Meet Hawa Abdi. A woman who has never raised her fist in anger against another human being, but also one who could perform three C-sections on dirt-poor women, wash her hands, then go straight outside, stare down an army of gun-toting hardcore fanatical Somali militiamen, and with four words send them running for their lives on a light-speed rainbow of shame and self-loathing without even blinking. A woman once appropriately described once as “one part Mother Teresa, one part Rambo.”
Read the rest at Badass of the Week.

Somebody make a movie about this woman.

Oh my Frick. DUDE. oAo Movie, yes. I would watch that.

Guys - please click here to donate to the Dr. Hawa Abdi Foundation. I just did!

she better win that fucking Nobel twice over

she got a written apology from a terrorist
