France has awarded Datuk Ambiga with its highest honour, the Chevalier de Legion d’Honneur

Everyone needs a role model. Someone brave to lead the way and make us want to, dare to, pursue our dreams. Or simply help feel good about ourselves just as we are.   Datuk Ambiga is definetely a role model for women’s around the world . She inspires me to continue with my cause  to advocate women empowerment, eradication of poverty and human rights.

In recognising her dedication to human rights and the rule of law, France has awarded Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan with its highest honour, the Chevalier de Legion d’Honneur (Knight of the Legion of Honour).

French Ambassador to Malaysia Marc Barety presented the award to the former Bar Council president in a ceremony at his residence on Friday. Ambiga dedicated the award to those who had supported her efforts.
 My heartiest congratulations to Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan.

In 2009, Ambiga was honoured by the United States with the prestigious Secretary of State’s International Women of Courage award in conjunction with International Women’s Day.
