Quote From Yemeni Feminist Writer Raufa Hassan

"There is a promise.. there is a hope at the beginning of this year; a hope which appeared last year, that women will have a share of our coming parliament as long as the elections would take place as it's planned. So, will it happen? this promise that comes at every election, that we work hard on and we hope to realise, and we dream day and night that one day we, women will become --according to the constitution-- citizens in front of the law, the laws that we all participate in making and take responsibility of." - Dr. Raufa Hassan, late prominent Yemeni feminist writer. >>
