Introducing myself and my journal: Woman with a vision

About Me:
I am a human rights activist who is currently working with a local ngo in Uganda. My organisation advocates for the rights of the batwa women and children who have been discriminated for years. I have been working in the human rights field for the last five years where i litigated cases of sexual violence, defilement, worker's compensation among others. I have also worked with commercial sex workers where i have educated them on their human rights and also provided them with legal aid when there were arrested for prostitution. I have always loved human rights especially women rights because i believe everything begins with a woman. If we can empower women then we have moved three steps closer to changing the world.

My Passions:
reading, swimming and networking

My Challenges:
Penetrating conservative communities

My Vision for the Future:
Women free from discrimination

My Areas of Expertise:
Human Rights

Hi Maya

Hi Maya,

Glad to see a "flutter" from this writers site. Maya, let's hope we can encourage Anita to write more as she has so much to give and we can all learn so much from her. I do not think she knows how powerful she is. But then I think that is true of most of us women, don't you think, Maya?

<3,
Wendy
