“It’s not just about using weapons, it’s about standing up for one’s rights, one identity, for everything that belongs to a human being. We try to create this awareness: an attack on one woman is an attack on all women. With this in mind, women need to organize themselves. When unity and togetherness is created, we all become stronger.”
