“(…) The poorest and most backward-going societies in the world, tend to be those who diminish their women and yet, this blatantly obvious truth is usually ignored, all the same, by governments and philanthropists… Women represent 51% of the human race, supporting them will change everything; even more so than technology, design or entertainment. Women who are educated, work and get opportunities will bring peace and prosperity to this desolated world (…)”- Isabel Allende
