Messages of support

Former Acting UN High Commissioner for Human Rights,
Bertrand G. Ramcharan
" [...] The prizes you are awarding today honour women leaders and organizations for their contribution to the defence of human rights, to the creation of a culture of peace, to combating poverty and malnutrition, and to the creation of economic opportunities for rural women. [...] Our human rights obligations require us to ensure that women will also be able to play a crucial role in efforts to bring about peace. [...][2003] "
