Stories of Girls’ Resistance
Adam, Mali


“…In fact we are in a society where it’s a little abnormal to see a little girl… because when I was 15, 16, 17 to 20 years I was really slim. I was slim and not tall so a little girl like me who talks about these issues; who in addition to school, goes for meetings, organises training, goes on TV, talks on the radio, for them it was abnormal. It’s abnormal and unacceptable but I did not see it that way. I saw no one. All I could see was my cause because I was passionate about that. It was not for me just another activity or work but it was really a passion and a duty; a duty of remembrance”
