We presented today!  What am empowering feeling to share with the world your hard work and passions.  Despite our technical difficulties at the beginning, we ended on a high note resulting in amazing networking opportunities with other organizations from around the United States.  

 On three notable occasions, NGOs from other states requested information about the organization of WomenNC, that they might implement a similar program in their state.  I was flattered when a women from another part of North Carolina approached me and requested to keep in touch with me that we might work together to bring to light the issues presented through my talk.  It was wonderful to see a room filled to capacity with men and women who were there to support and learn from us. 
On several occasions as we spoke, comments and praises from audience members could be heard when poignant themes were revealed by our presentations.

Throughout the sessions here at CSW there has been a consistent focus on the importance that youth can have on the impact of women’s rights.  Today’s presentations demonstrate the power that younger members of the women’s movement can have to move others in the right direction. 
One of the largest and most consistent themes of CSW has been women in decision making positions and the significance of educating the youth of the world.  If a program like WomenNC can be replicated and implemented properly in other states, imagine the impact that the youth will have on the future.  Thank you to all of the other fellows for all of your hard work.  You inspire me on a daily basis and I am honored to have had the chance to work with leaders who will shape the future of our world.


  1. Great report on the presentations. The photo shows that the weather is on your side too! Looks completely balmy there! Now each of you can enjoy the week, without worrying about being at the top of your game for your presentations. More networking ahead, I'm sure! Congratulations on a great day.

  2. I'm guessing that Jane is on her way back to NC by now. Glad she was able to be there and share part of the experience with you and all the Fellows. Many thanks for her precious break time spent helping all of you.
