DIEDRE said

it all starts with diversity…embracing diversity…is the only way to stay relevant.

DENISE said

gender inequality is alive and well all over the world. There is good news, WE ARE FIERCER!
Girls and women are creating change.

ADA said

I identify as female. Why do I do this work? I was born into it.
I’m here to ensure that the…STRENGTH and BRILLIANCE of women are unleashed…
…ELEVATING the voices of those closest to the issues…increasing women’s POWER and INFLUENCE
dismantling the most pervasive barriers to full participation of WOMEN.

MARY said

Leaders are lonely, sometimes leaders need to talk to each other.

PAMELA said

So many girls who I was friends with were either
anticipating violence,
experiencing violence,
recovering from violence.
If we can’t address the safety of women and girls, then we’ll never get
free.
Listen listen listen and listen and then maybe listen some
more.

PAULETTE said

Feminist philanthropy is not a charitable act, it is an act of solidarity and mutual empowerment.

KAT sang

When I see that sad surrender in my sisters eyes…I can’t help but sympathize.
Then Kat said
Never separate social and racial equity from environmental justice.
Our country’s origins were deeply problematic, in slavery, native genocide, less than personhood for women.
At the crossroads of intersectionality is where we find the biggest solutions

JANE said

Grandmothers are being trained as solar engineers

NALINI said

(In Fiji ) 71% of women have been physically and sexually abused by a partner or non-partner.
Women made 6 attempts to find help.
The distance of services and where the women were…there are many barriers as to why
women
are
not
able
to
seek
justice
immediately.

YICHING SONG said

We really have learned a lot from women farmers in China. Women are the
dominant
farming labor force.
Feminization and aging of agriculture is really happening in China.
At the same time they are taking care of

children                                                                          and elders.
Women take care of both sides
and take care of farm.

NANDITA said

We do give women a place at the table, we don’t give her a VOICE.

AMANDA said

Climate change is a man-made problem in need of feminist solutions..
Women are the solution bringers.

ELEVATE

EDUCATE,                                                       COLLABORATE.
