It will take many generations because we are now talking about not just increased opportunities for girls and women, but about a social revolution with an impact as large as the Industrial Revolution, for we are changing the roles of women and men, so that they are far closer to equal than they have ever been in the history of the world. And that is not easy to do. We have only taken the very first steps of what will be a very long journey.
