Making room for women
To be a member of society implies responsibility – but to whom? I have chosen to work for equality and to open up opportunities for women and those at a social and economic disadvantage. To my mind what is most urgent is to insure that all girls can be educated, especially in places where that is still forbidden, or that all children can be fed and cured. But it is also important to make visible what has been suppressed; to change the organization of spaces so women can inhabit them as social agents; and to carve out spaces of recognition for women’s contributions to culture and society until these become the accepted norm, not the much publicized exception.
