“The ever-present abuse of social and human rights in our world keeps me consciously awake, grateful, and humble. Geography dictates my freedom as a woman, geography and the women before us who fought for our equal political voice. The inequality that is all too prevalent all over the world is so great and so frightening. We owe it to our sisters who have no voice, and no chance to be heard, to speak up.”
