AAUW Members Attend UN Conf. on Women, Children, and Climate Change

Janine Mower attended the UN conference on Women and Children and Climate Change with others from our branch this week. She has a new, personal blog, the View From My Kitchen Window where she has posted a series on her trip to the city, her reflections on being at the UN, and her summary and comments on the conference speakers.

Visit her new blog, congratulate her in the comments, and read her impressions of the day.

View From My Kitchen Window: "We left the conference and as we drove back to Ulster county- thru the streets of one of the most important cities in the world, New York city, I was struck by how vulnerable we all are.

Many Americans are living one pay check away from financial disaster.

In order to not feel overwhelmed by the magnitude of the problems we face as humans on this wonderful planet, I seek out a small local problem and do my best to help it come to a resolution. I'm sure that there are many others out there that do the same."
Thanks for sharing your experience, Janine.
