Hally Siddons was one of a 20-strong delegation from Graduate Women International to the United Nations NGO Commission on the Status of Women – CSW61 in New York. They were ably led by GWI President, Geeta Desai and were a mix of most interesting and inspiring members from Australia, Canada, the Congo, Egypt, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, South Africa, Turkey, Uganda, and the USA. It was an exciting and invigorating time as they discussed global issues among themselves and with many others from around the world. The days and evenings were packed with multiple events at the United Nations, side events, parallel sessions off site, and special invitations to Permanent Missions.
