About Me: 

I am passionate about women's rights. I am a writer, journalist and human rights activist. I am particularly interested in protecting mothers, young people, women and their babies. I am a 45-year-old woman of mixed nationality. I am angry about the way women are treated and continue to be treated. I have suffered sexual abuse, sexual discrimation and sexual humiliation in my life. I have two sons. I am proud to be able to stand up for women's rights.

My Passions: 
Freedom and empowerment for women and girls.
My Challenges: 
Living in a world where I see an abuse of these basic human rights on a daily basis.
My Vision for the Future: 
A voice for all women.
My Areas of Expertise: 
Fund-raising, writing, journalism, networking, getting things done, being a mother (my greatest pleasure).
My Languages: 
English, French
