Women Broadcasters Quote from Aung San Suu Kyi

In support, and to draw attention to the womens support group based in California, Outervoices. Org, see story on Vietnam radio documentary earlier posting here, Digital Broadcast Vendor News Asia would like to quote the following from the eminent lady who knows suffering in Myanmar:

Quote:

"For millennia women have dedicated themselves almost exclusively to the task of nurturing, protecting and caring for the young and the old, striving for the conditions of peace that favour life as a whole. To this can be added the fact that, to the best of my knowledge, no war was ever started by women. But it is women and children who have always suffered most in situations of conflict. Now that we are gaining control of the primary historical role imposed on us of sustaining life in the context of the home and family, it is time to apply in the arena of the world the wisdom and experience thus gained in activities of peace over so many thousands of years. The education and empowerment of women throughout the world cannot fail to result in a more caring, tolerant, just and peaceful life for all."
