Vital Voices Network member Danielle Saint-Lot was recently interviewed by NPR’s Tony Cox on Talk of the Nation. Danielle is a co-founder of our Haiti chapter, Femmes en Democratie. During her interview, she spoke about the critical role that women must play in the reconstruction of her home country. With elections in the near future, Danielle says that women must vie for seats in the national congress.
“[women] have to be the ones rebuilding the country. And there’s, you know, quite a few groups of young women, emerging leaders that are going to run. For the moment, our organization, Femmes en Democratie, we’re supporting 50 women candidates for Congress.”
