We attended an outstanding event, The Dinner Party, a few days before the official International Woman's Day, a fundraiser for SAVIS and CSAW. The main speaker of the evening was Sally Armstrong, the acclaimed reporter and columnist who delivered a powerful, profound speech about the status of women around the world.
She has written a book Ascent By Women.
Sally Armstrong spoke about about women's issues in Afghanistan, a rape case brought by 160 young girls in Kenya and the need for personal willpower for change. Over 900 attendees at #thedinnerpartyiwd
Although much progress has been made in the world, we still have along way to go baby!
