“If there’s anything that I see most often, it would be girls having the lack of opportunity to go to school, like the boys do, or to start their own businesses, like the men do. There’s still a huge lack of opportunity for those women and girls. It shouldn’t be a barrier whatsoever. Every single person should have the same opportunities. It should be an expectation that women and girls have the same opportunities as others.”
