Interview with Rebecca Stubblefield from medica mondiale Liberia.
What do you take with you from this conference?
I received a lot of solidarity and information from across the globe, vital information and critical analysis of the different situation of different places. Alone the fact of seeing different people from all around the globe understading what you are talking about and where you are standing, feeling the same way, is a huge boost for me.
What advice would you give to people interested in the subjects of the conference that want to get involved?
The essence of the issue of gender centers around justice, equality, respect and human rights. If those things are your interests, you have already taken the first step. Basically it is always good to have a good understanding of the culture in which you want to venture with your work because people understand different things from different perspectives at different levels and you have to be very careful that the message that you carry across is very especific and stands against discrimination and disrespect. Our messages have to clarify those things we fight for and those we are against. In the meantime, start with respecting diversity and respecting the views of others.
