Yes the woman does exist but not as a person.
She exists, we believe, in all of us.

This woman is wise, she has learnt and she is open to more learning, more wisdom.

Yet she is not wary, she has a vision, she has her eyes on the horizon (and the line: Gender Research in Africa/Arab Countries into ICTS for Empowerment).

She knows her strength, the strength that comes with persistence, with overcoming and with the courage to see things as they are.

She is not afraid of her power. Yet she will not use it to disempower others.

She has fought and is prepared to fight some more but she is not looking for it.


And last but not least, she has a sense of humour and a general tenderness and compassion when she looks at the world. She can afford this attitude because she loves herself and gives herself a jolly good time when the situation allows this.

And this woman loves (her) men. Especially the men who are not afraid to see such power in a woman. She is prepared to work and play with them anytime.

And all the time, she keeps her focus. Her eyes on the line: Gender Research in Africa/Arab countries into ICTs for Empowerment because she knows how much still needs to be done.

You see how she lives in all of us?
