This AIDS conference has been full of knowledge. It wasn’t just about HIV/AIDS. It was about learning and gathering and sharing information and opinions among people with HIV and without HIV. I also think that this conference was about women sharing about empowerment. There was discussion of violence, inequality, and disrespect. I hope everyone came out a little smarter and a little more aware how they can help especially that women’s empowerment can make a difference in the environment and in people’s minds. I’m eleven and I am taking a lot out of this conference. A bit more than I expected. I just hope that education for men and women gets better. That we know about HIV/AIDS and that our awareness changes our actions. Denying young people information about sex is a violation of their rights.
