“Who are the women of courage?” – An Interview with Vernie Yocogan-Diano

Vernie dropped into the KAIROS office on her way to meet up with the rest of the delegates in Colombia.

We took the opportunity to interview her.
This is Vernie’s response to the question, “Who are the women of courage?”.

A lot of the women leaders who are involved in women’s organizations and movements are actually the targets of terrorism by the state and repression, but in that process they were not silenced.  These women were not silenced, these women did not fear, but they pursued, and they developed all the more their resolve to be part of the struggle, and to have that courage in order for the struggle to achieve its objectives.
