I was having tea with a young female friend, who then worked as an English teacher, and we discussed women's rights and the professional perspectives of women in Yemen. All of a sudden she said: "Oh, you have to meet Khadega. She can give a lot of insight!" And so Khadega and I met. We met only once in person, but have been in contact ever since. And whenever Khadega writes and tells me about her life and experiences in Sanaa, I am enthusiastic about her critical views, her courage and her humour. I am keen on spreading her views.
