Being Woman

 The Freedom to Choose.

Access to knowledge is the first step towards social and cultural reform. 

Only when a woman is made aware of her rights, can she have the choice to execute it. 

It is safe to say that knowledge gives a woman the ability to choose, and “to choose” gives her the ability to claim her autonomy.
