2016 Speech - AFRICA WOMEN IN SPORT CONFERENCE, BOTSWANA 14 October 2016

There are so many women who are providing us with shining examples of what each and every one of us can and must do to develop sport; in our communities; in our cities and towns; our provinces; our countries and our continent. To this end, we need to recorgnise and salute our unsung heroines. Women's values and skills surely deserve as much space and support as that of traditional male-driven activities. The argument must not be that women have the human right to be equally represented but rather that what they bring to the conference, to the classroom and to the world of sport. That needs to be equally integrated in order to achieve a better world for all. To my view, the world does itself a disservice by not recorgnising and integrating the innate values and competencies of women.
