It is great to see so many of those who have been part of Focus on the Global South’s twenty-year journey here today, cherished comrades and friends, all of who are also 20 years older…but all still burning with youthful energy like Focus.
We are women, sisters, movements, networks, and activists from all over Southeast Asia and across the globe, expressing our solidarity with all the women of Burma (Myanmar) and the rest of ASEAN on this 103rd International Women's Day celebration.
