Women are the barometers of society: they are an indication of its internal pressure levels, and their fortunes can be the clearest forecasts of good or bad things to come. Where women prosper, societies prosper; and where women suffer, so too do the societies in which they live. Women are the people who can bring about real and lasting transformation at every level in society. - Kamalesh Sharma, Secretary General, Commonwealth.
