“The danger with the single story is that a single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story.”
| “I raise up my voice—not so I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard…we cannot succeed when half of us are held back.”
WWN is pleased to celebrate the amazing stories of phenomenal everyday women (living and dead), who inspire us to be and do more.
They contribute their resources and gifts to their various communities through their commitment to excellence in advocacy, volunteerism, social enterprise, professionalism, entrepreneurial and philanthropic activities, across different sectors: The Arts, Culture, Science, Technology, Environment, Corporate, Education, Health and Faith-based sectors.
