Travelling through Morocco, I encountered an association that helped young girls – between the ages of six and twelve – return to school after having been placed by “recruiters” in families to work as “little maids”. Some of them ended as prostitutes on the streets or became pregnant at an age when they should have been playing with their friends.
I knew then without the shadow of a doubt what I needed to do. It was the moment I committed to work relentlessly to promote a world where all women and men would enjoy equal and full social, economic and political rights. It was the only way forward. And advancing women also meant helping their communities which eventually would transpire into fostering progress for everyone.
