And congratulations also to you, Mrs. Ban Soon-Taek, who have had the courage and vision to start this valuable Association. Many thanks also to you, Muna Rihani, who are the driving force behind this organization. This Award will give me even more energy to continue fighting for women all over  the world, for their rights, their safety and the ones of their children. I would like to thank my mother and my husband, who are here today and have always given me  their support and  encouragement in all my undertakings. I look very much forward to marching with all of you tomorrow and will bring my  two little girls, because I want them to learn at an early age the meaning of peace, tolerance and justice for all. Thank you.”
