Opal Tometi said : “I am a feminist and I think sometimes feminism on the African continent and in other places comes with a negative connotation. There is a lot of confusion as to what it really means but in simple terms, feminism is just the equality of gender. I stand for women and girls being treated with the respect they deserve rather than being abused, sold into prostitution, and being given the fair chance. I think women are doing a double job – making things work at home and pushing their professional careers so they deserve to be praised for the incredible jobs they are doing to make societies survive” External link
