Leslie Harris is a Changemaker
Leslie Harris: "I think that women add a perspective to public debates, whether they're writing poetry or opinion pieces about the government in their country. Building women's voices is part of political stability."

Laurel Touby is a Changemaker
Laurel Touby: "I think women need to take more chances and play more risks. And that's the really hard thing to do because it means flying off the edge of a building with no support in sight, but it's there; you will fly if you were meant to fly. You've just got to believe."
