It Is A Call To Courage!

When We Are Bold is not only a celebration of women peacemakers and the activists they’ve inspired, it is a call to courage. A call to all of us who have allowed activism to be defined as something that other people do, to those of us who have orphaned our voice and our story, and to every woman and man who has struggled or borne witness to injustices that left their hearts flooded with truth and stories that need to be spoken.

[...] Little African girls coming up behind us, who may be feeling out of place, are reminded by our example that boldness and outspokenness is in our DNA by design: it is no mistake."
