Girls Learn Attend UN Conference

girls_learn2Each spring, women from around the world convene at the UN’s annual Commission on the Status of women. The Feminist Majority foundation is the parent organization of Girls Learn and, as active participants in the Commission on the Status of Women, they see how the voices of girls are important when considering policy changes and implementation of social programs.

CHS teacher Sarah Widdop serves as the Girls Learn Club Advisor and accompanied Corinne and Kris on the trip. Read more here.
