Hally Siddons was once again one of a 20 strong delegation from Graduate Women International to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women 62 in New York in March 2018.  Members were ably lead by GWI President, Geeta Desai, GWI VP, Louise McLeod, and the 4 GWI UN Reps in New York. There was a mix of most interesting and inspiring women from Nigeria, Australia, Zimbabwe, New Zealand, Mexico, South Africa, and USA.  There were over 10,000 registered attendees from around the world for the ten day session. It was an exciting and invigorating time as delegates discussed global issues and this year’s priority theme, achieving gender equality and the empowerment of rural women and girls. The days and evenings were packed with multiple events at the UN, side events, parallel sessions off site, and special invitations to Permanent Missions.
