“Silencing women’s voices only amplifies the fear of those who don’t yet understand her capabilities. It’s time that her fierce loyalty, hard work, and heart become seen as necessary strengths in society.”

Naw Wah Law Eh Paw, Human Rights Advocate

“The law is a statement of your worth by your government. Laws that treat men and women, girls and boys unequally relegate women and girls to a lower status in society. Failure to outlaw practices that harm women and girls leaves them with no recourse for violations against them. The law is the way to hold your government accountable for your protection.”

Yasmeen Hassan, Global Executive Director, Equality Now

“Determination is the sole driven force that pushes me towards my fullest potential despite the limited expectations people have on me.”

Naw Tha Dah Ni Win, Human Rights Advocate

“For every young woman who is hurting from the daily injustice she faces, there’s her dream of becoming an effective leader for others. Their stories may bring some to tears, but their lives speak louder of strength and determination.”

Ruth Lesmana, Director of Training, Global Alms Incorporated

“The solution to women’s issues can only be achieved in a free and democratic society in which human energy is liberated, the energy of both women and men together. Our civilization is called human civilization and is not attributed only to men or women.”

“We don’t always know what the big picture is, but each of us have been given a chance to do something great within our lifetime. Please don’t waste that opportunity! Find your passion, grasp it & run towards it with everything you have in the tank. Whatever that may be; being the best parent you can be, changing the lives of thousands with Human rights reform, rescuing abused animals or volunteering in your local community; no job is more significant than the next. What is significant, is finding your passion, working hard to achieve your goals & your commitment to making a difference.”

Naw S’ha Khee La, Human Rights Advocate

“My mother raised me to be strong, to a point that if one day, I was left alone, I would be able to take care of myself.”

Ayesha Farooq, Pakistani Fighter Pilot

“My personal belief is everyone is created equal, everyone has the right to be safe, everyone has the right to say ‘No’ and make their own choices in life. I advocate for women because we are not all valued, supported and honoured as we should be. RMJ United is a platform for women to come together, to collaborate, to learn, to speak out and be united in their efforts to bring about change across the globe.”

Mechelle Moore, Founder & CEO, RMJ United

“I love being a female because I am so underestimated, and when I do what I have to do, they just stand there with their eyes falling out.”
