For Mumbi Ngugi, a Kenyan activist for people with albinism, the most important right for women is economic empowerment. For New York student Omolara Williams, it's all about "fighting for voice". And for "Wild Swans" author Jung Chang, it's the right to live one's dreams.

Ngugi, Williams and Chang are just three of the extraordinary women interviewed in What do women’s rights mean to you?, a multimedia production to mark the launch of TrustLaw Women, a global hub of news and information on women's rights.
