- Without their honesty,resilience and hardiness I would not be here.
- I honour the sacrifices they made in order to raise their families, my ancestors.
- I am proud of the contribution my ancestors made, in order that future generations would live in a very different world to the one they inhabited.
- I am proud that women have gained a different place in Society, by gaining the vote, and being treated as equals, all through the hard work of other women. Women who were not frightened to stand and be counted.
