"Women are the backbone of society, especially in rural and remote areas. By supporting women we also support our traditions and the values we hold dear. That is what I stand in for."
"Women posess great power: women mean faster economic growth, better results of enterprises, closer cooperation between countries, long-lasting peace treaties, decisions and resolutions on social and employment matters, empathy, love, authentic system of values. Progress and strength have a female face. This is why it would be more appropriate to ask: what can women do for Europe? And they can do a lot- that is why Europe should invest and believe in women. Failing to make use of women’s strong sides is a great loss. For everybody!"
"Despite great strides made by the international women’s rights movement over many years, women are still facing a gender
pay gap in income and pension. We have a responsibility towards these female protagonists to continue their course and to protect the rights and improve the lives of women and girls on the ground."
