So for most of the week I spent at least part of my day at the UN headquarters. They have a lovely exhibit (scroll about halfway down) on women around the world and how they are super important. Too bad they didn’t think about the placement of the movable exhibit in relation to unmovable statue given by the Greek government in 1952.
This evening, we headed to the Museum of Modern Art where they had an exhibit on the Convention of the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW). There were a number of ways CEDAW was represented, but the one that most struck me was the representation of women at war – being there but not.
Tomorrow is my last full day here. Boo. But I am looking forward to getting home to Marianne and my kitty. International politics are great, but so is defeating Amendment 1 in May!
Speaking of which, did you hear the N.C. Association of Baptist Preachers took a stand against it? Woo hoo!
