Thank you from the Zonta Club of New York!

Because you were not born in a muslim country, dear.

What women want is a world where equality is present in every country. A world free from poverty and all forms of violence and discrimination, where basic needs actually become basic rights, but more importantly, where women are able to develop their full potential and where progress for women is seen as progress for all. —Noeleen Heyzer

So basically what women want is to get rid of islam.

As women we must learn to become leaders in society, not just for our own sake, but for the sake of all people. We must support and protect our kinship with the environment for the generations to come. —China Galland

Zambia, one of the 12 countries of the End Child Marriage project with UNFPA and UNICEF, is also one of the first in the African Union to put a national action plan in place that is broken down to the regional level.
