NY 1325 madness

25 October 2005
Greetings from NY, where 1325 5 years on madness is in full swing… the NGO Working Group on Women, Peace and Security has brought women from different conflict contexts to UN Headquarters as part of our October Advocacy Program and so far things have been very exciting. Our participants are brilliant- and we have had 2 days of workshops and training to prepare them for speaking to the media- several of them have been interviewed already and have done a great job. Later today Sweeta Noori of Afghanistan will be speaking in the Security Council Arria Formula, as will Goretti Ndacayisaba of Dushirehamwe in Burundi. We know they will do well despite the difficulties of squeezing everything they want to say and recommend to the SC into a 10 minute speech…
Because I have written two long posts which I have lost and now have to run off to more meetings, I will be back with an update later on…
