The December meeting was in a private atmosphere, very warm, and everybody spoke freely about their experiences in life in Cyprus. Women who had come from all over the world to live in Cyprus, Cypriots from Australia, from England, Bulgaria, Greece; there were Greeks from Rhodes or Canada. What they brought on the table of discussion were the problems they were having here; nationalism, racism, no care for environment, unfriendly behaviour.

For me it was the first time to realise that women in the South had the same experiences than those in the North.
