Written by Amanda Awethu I cannot believe I almost gave up on coming to Cape Town for the 11th AWID Forum. I was on the verge of giving up as I had hassles trying to get the South African visa - every time I go to apply for a visa (twice a year), there are always new rules. Anyway, I am happy to be connecting with feminists and getting affirmation that feminism is the way to go in my work and my life.
