TRANSCRIPT

(upbeat music)

- [Woman 1] Women demanded new space.

- [Woman 2] I am willing and not afraid

to tread the paths of my destiny.

- [Woman 3] She used her voice to encourage women

to be politically involved.

- [Woman 4] The Times of humiliation have passed.

Women are no longer men's servants, but they're equals.

- [Woman 5] She really sets off a whole firestorm.

- [Woman 6] You can't have freedom for anybody

in a society unless you have freedom for everybody.

- [Woman 7] She knows that black women

still don't have the status that white women do.

- [Woman 8] My Sisters of the dominant race stand up

not only for the oppressed sex,

but also for the oppressed race.

- [Woman 9] That means

they're still fighting for their rights.

And that's why her voice is important.

- [Woman 10] Let us stand up straight and continue

claiming our human rights.

- [Woman 11] They were the change-makers.
