“Together, we must declare that the era of allowing the brutality against women and children is over while affirming that the time for empowering women around the world is now,”
“We must begin now to challenge old fears, fight long-held prejudices and stand up against evil,”
“As you go forward, remember their journeys as you push ahead and strive to bring about a better community, a better country, and a better world in the ongoing fight for right over might,”
