“The women I want to celebrate are Mrs. Rhoda Kalema and Mrs. Joyce Mpanga for their pioneering role in the women’s movement. I have watched these women from afar and I know them both to be women of integrity, women that speak truth to power, women that are values driven. They have stood with women and have championed many causes for women including girls’ education and women’s participation in politics and decision making. Both these women are very kind, humble and unassuming. Both women were widowed young, and they went on to raise incredible children and families. Both are currently writing their life stories and Mrs. Kalema hopes to launch her book in April or May this year.”  –  Jackie Asiimwe
