As I look forward to the opening of the AWID forum , I am quite excited about the work that the young feminist have planned for the conference.It pleases me to know that space has been opened up for young feminists within the forum and I hope their visibility will make an impact.

The meeting was explosive with different ideas from diverse women across the globe. It was an enriching and eye opening experience. It also challenged me as a woman and as an activist to do more for the women's cause.

As if we have not had enough troubles with the political jokers and the central bank severely compromising our right to life. I get increasingly angry, yet I know anger only gets me into a state of compromising my immune system.
