Emma Bonino, founder No Peace without Justice, vice president of Italian Senate, closes @Trustwomenconf #twconf12 - revolutions/awakenings are a process, she says, not a one-day event
Only 10 percent of elected parliamentarians in Italy are women - a pathetic situation, says Bonino #twconf12
She says she feels honoured to be the international aunt of everyone in this room (not grandmother!). Just keep going - don't give up, she tells the room. And this network stands by you. We need both a top down and a bottom up approach. Let's stop talking, let's just do.
More and more we must mob them, says Bonino, talking about institutions/elected bodies. #twconf12
Bonino: You have to change your own institutions - we want institutions to take care of our needs and our demands #twconf12
Ambition seems to be a positive word for men, but not for women, says Bonino #twconf12 talking about gender stereotypes
We want power because from positions of power we can change things. So if you want power, don't be shy about asking for it. We will persevere, says Bonino. #twconf12
