“To me a woman is not less than a man. We have women who are the head of the household, taking care of children. If in the past, we used to say, ‘You’re only a woman,’ it is because we were illiterate. Our fathers did not know that we could go to school and go to work in an office like men do. No, a woman has the same value as a man.”
