A message from Anoma Fonseka

by Anoma Fonseka

“Cautious, careful people, always casting about to preserve their reputation and social standing, never can bring about a reform. Those who are really in earnest must be willing to be anything or nothing in the world's estimation, and publicly and privately, in season and out, avow their sympathy with despised and persecuted ideas and their advocates, and bear the consequences...”

(March 09, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) I thought this quote from Susan B. Anthony, a women’s rights activist, sums up my feeling about women’s day and life in general. Just as we need strength as women to stand up for ourselves so should we have the strength to stand up for others in their time of need and damn the consequences.
