As a first world advocate and a woman, it is equally important that I be vigilant and maintain an attitude of “within gender” equity. My Voices of the Future Correspondent, Fungai Machirori, eloquently addresses this point in her journal entry addressed to Michelle Bachelet, UN Women Executive Director.

It is gratifying to me that her letter as selected to appear in the online World Pulse magazine.
