United Nations Commission on the Status of Women:
GSGWM was fortunate enough to send a delegation of four girls to this year’s UN Commission on the Status of Women! The girls had a fantastic time, meeting delegations from all over the country (and the world!) and taking in the sights in New York City while they attended sessions on women’s rights and education. Among other things, they learned about the implementation of the millennium development goals in Nigeria, including their work to increase education for girls and get boys involved in the process. Not only did they get a chance to meet leaders in the field, but they spoke with them more informally before discussing what they learned with other teens.
