He began his talk by reading from the Bible –(1kigs 3-,16-28). He encouraged the women, by sharing that, women should be mothers, wives, and a sister to families and societies. Indeed his class was powerful and Motivational, in which everyone felt, the importance of women and their uniqueness in societies. ‘’No one can make us feel inferior without our consent’’. We should fight to get justice till the last. Behind the Success of each man, there is the hard work of women.
