"[Highlights were the] keynote speaker and huge array of advocacy and service groups. Women's rights are already my highest priority so my opinion was not changed, just charged up."
"The movie Pray the Devil Back to Hell was amazing and moving. Our group of women had a range of emotion after we saw it, and are so grateful to the women who were willing to put their lives on the line to create peace. It reminds each of us we can make a difference in the lives around us, one person at a time."
"I definitely will bring back all of the new information I have regarding different organizations that work for women's rights. Also, I have already shared the story about the Liberian women because I think it is so wonderful!"
“Listening to Leymah was truly inspiring. There in front of me was this woman who had shared a vision with hundreds of other women in her community... something also shared with hundreds of other women right with me in the audience. This little passion can go a long way.”
“I just love being around feisty feminists and intellectual inspiring people from so many backgrounds.”
“Meeting with all the different organizations and learning about all the global and local work they do to make our world a better place. I am inspired.”
“I loved hearing Leymah speak, and walking around to all the tables, talking to many other people interested in women's rights - I could do this every weekend!”
