“It’s the little things citizens do. That’s what will make the difference.”“The one thing I have never been afraid of is standing before important people and speaking my mind. I represent women who may never have the opportunity to go to the UN or meet with a president. I’m never afraid to speak truth to power.” “Solidarity between women can be a powerful force of change, and can influence future development in ways favourable not only to women but also to men.” “We Africans have to be able to deal with our problems.
