Barbara delivered her talk with confidence and the passionate flair of a natural story-teller. She commanded the stage along with the audience who completely related to her as the embodiment of the Modern Day African Woman. Barbara was eloquent, classy and left us pondering just how much farther we can go to improve the livelihood of women in our Zimbabwean setting.
