◆ "This conference, I think, by having the theme, 'Embracing the Earth, East-West, North-South,' has pointed us in the right direction, because this is the time where all women come together from all grassroots movements and struggles of people. I believe that the feminist struggle is the core element in this global struggle for a just and equitable world."
- Filomina Steady (Sierra Leone / speaker)
◆ "As a student studying gender studies, this has been a new experience for me. I've never met so many people before, and I have learned the importance of cultural differences."
- Yuma Fujii (Japan / participant)
◆ "As one of the few male volunteers in this WW05 conference, I experienced what it felt like to be the minority or to be marginalized. I really think more men should be aware of problems regarding the marginalization of women, because they are something, which should be resolved by both men and women."
- Lee Chang-kyu (Korea / volunteer)
