I am captivated by the firmness in St. Lucia’s eyes, that shows her courage in fighting a just cause. I am moved by her gesture: she points her finger to the sky, a symbol of her resilience.
Today, let’s celebrate unanimously all women, in particular the youngest, who take the courage to fight for a just cause.
