I want to say something profound but I have nothing.
So I’ll say thank you.
Thank you to all the women who’ve paved the way and made it easier for women like me to work.
Thank you to the women who continually show by example that we can go beyond the boundaries.
Thank you to all the women who fight and rise up indignantly against gender inequality and violence towards women; who uphold the right to education for women and girls around the world.
Thank you to my mother for modelling the fact that a woman can….
Thank you to the every day women that surround me and challenge me to be all that I ever hope and dream.
And thank you to my daughter for inspiring me, every day, to be a better woman.
