The first thing that comes to her mind is her love for storytelling. She used to tell herself stories that lasted even for months. Objects and landscapes were random ones. Her life may be a series of fragmentary stories that were told by herself and various incredible people, whom she was lucky to have met, yet some stories she said she decided to keep for herself only.

Her fight for women’s rights began all of a sudden, however, it soon became a inevitability. It has therefore been 17 years since she was for the first time involved in the movement. She maintains that the “click” really happened to her and after this she simply could no longer see the world with the same eyes. Since then, every thought in her mind became an engaged opinion, a fighting thought!

She will always remember the celebration of March 8th, in 2008 in Rex, when a march was banned. Eighteen women who participated in writing the book named Someone said feminism barely settled in front of the stage. This book and this presentation were indeed a holiday of feminism, for which she will always be proud of.

When asked about her happiest moment in life, she states that every time she delivers a lecture, she comes out with a feeling that something has happened, a tiny little change in consciousness, in feelings, in the will and therefore she feels truly happy. However, she chooses to forget the sad stories or moments.

For her, feminism marks a transferable struggle that fundamentally changes the living conditions of women and men (and all of them in between) and offers us freedom in equality. It also requires constant work to change the way we think, believe, feel and evaluate.

She is doing what she can do the best: She writes, translates and speaks. She believes that it is our duty to engage in the public realm, to make a difference between the meaning of the public and private, to expand the spaces that are possible for those who shall one day succeed us.
