Bono said, “When women feel safe at homes or walking on the street, that’s a beautiful day. When sisters around the world are in school like their brothers, that’s a beautiful day. When women of the world unite to rewrite history as their story, that’s a beautiful day. To rewrite history as her story – that’s a beautiful day“
Truly beautiful to see a renown band using its platform for the betterment of the world; starting from speaking for the rights of women. Bono along with the entire band is an inspiration. In addition, a perfect example of how every star should make use of their platform.
