A very good morning to Mrs. Ang and all seated before me today. I am here today to celebrate the contributions made by women in every aspect of our lives, as citizens, as teachers, and for those seated before me, as learners.

We women share a common future and we seek common ground to bring respect, dignity and most importantly, equality to all. The right is ours. The only question now is: how shall we get possession of what rightfully belongs to us? Think about it, what can be done, what actions can be taken and what should have been done decades ago to regain the possession of something that rightfully belongs to us.



I’ve met female doctors and nurses looking after children in the aftermath of war and disaster.

 

I’ve met the leading women of the Western Hemisphere who work 24/7 to promote literacy among their children.



Women, comprising more than half the world’s population and sadly, making up 70% of the world’s poor, are the
primary caretakers for majority of the world’s children and elders. Yet, much of our work goes unnoticed.
Our contributions are not valued by economists. Our contributions are not valued by historians. Our contributions
are not valued by society.

 

Today, I know many women are being beaten as I speak. I know many women are being raped as I speak. I know many women are being murdered as I speak. I know that many women have died because of insufficient food or water. I know that many women are dying because of inadequate healthcare. Can you even bear to think about from where you are now, the hundreds, no, the thousands of women that have died as you listened to me speak?

 

I speak for them, for women around the world who are denied chances of education and not allowed to see doctors, to own property, or simply to have a say about their lives. I stand to speak for all mothers who are fighting for good education. I stand to speak for all mothers who seek safe neighbourhoods. I stand to speak for all mothers who wish proper sanitation for their children.

 

It is time to break our silence. It is time to end our sufferings. It is time for us to say and for the world to hear. It is time for our voice to be heard loud and clear. This is the time to break out. This is the time to break free. This is the time to march towards our better lives.

If you could just take a moment to imagine a world where everyone is equally loved. A world where everyone is equally cared for. A world where everyone is treated with respect.

 

The challenge here is not to bring awareness to the plight of women. The challenge is not to educate people about women rights. The true challenge is, but to make every single day of the year a women's day, not only on the 8th of March, but an entire year.

 

I believe that if we women stand united, we will be recognised. If we women stand united, problems of inequality and injustice against us will be solved. If we women stand united, we will be given political rights. We will be given economical rights. We will be given societal rights. And we, definitely, will be returned of our rightful women rights.

 

Thank you!
