“Educate a woman, and you educate a nation.” – Mrs. Efosa Etomi, President (AWLA NIG)

 

I would like to thank every single woman who elected me as the president of the African Women Lawyer’s Association. I do not take this for granted. We are at a turning point when it comes to the battle for gender equality and justice… as individuals, as a nation, as a continent, as one world. There is a lot of work to do and a lot of work that has already been done by so many women before me who paved the way. I ask you for your support and strength in bringing about the positive changes we want to see for women on this continent.
