Last quote by Winnie Byanyima

She always believed that the sky was the limit for herself and her children. That's why I am who I am because she'd never gave me an option to say, Oh I can't do maths, I'm a girl,' I had to be the best. I could not give myself a pass and say this is tough. You had to show her that you've tried, and you've tried your best and you've done your bit. She taught me to believe in myself to claim equality and to dream big.feedback

Winnie Byanyima quotes

Jan 23 2015

But I am not very optimistic when I see that that growth is very much captured by a political and connected elite working closely with multinational companies, that this wealth, being created, is not being ploughed back into the lives of ordinary people, creating jobs and giving them health and education. We need to do more to bring the resources to the people.feedback

I'm optimistic because Africa now has been turning in positive and strong figures of growth. This is good. And it's positive and I hope it continues.feedback

Business as usual for the elite isn't a cost free option. Failure to tackle inequality will set the fight against poverty back decades. The poor are hurt twice by rising inequality – they get a smaller share of the economic pie and because extreme inequality hurts growth, there is less pie to be shared around.feedback
