I am truly thankful to have been a part of organizing WFWPI’s CSW61 parallel event entitled: “Women Fostering Peace and Co-Prosperity: Creating Intergenerational Collaboration sans Arrogance.” It was wonderful to see women across generations and nationalities, come together each week to share ideas, experiences, and constructive criticism to plan such a meaningful event. When I attended the well-received parallel event, I could not have asked for a better send off to my week at the United Nations on behalf of WFWPI.As with WFWPI’s parallel event, a common theme ran through all the side events: the importance of youth and older…

Like most of us, I look forward to the new spring season with all the beauty and freshness that comes with it. Likewise, I was also inspired by the anticipation of spending a few days in New York City at the United Nations for the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW60). This year's conference with the theme "Women Empowered to Implement the Sustainable Development Goals" held from March 14 to the 24, was in no way a disappointment. I arrived in New York as a representative for WFWP USA, the Midwest Region. New York City was on fire with…

This is my fourth year in a row representing WFWP USA at the annual Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) events in New York City. Each year it is quite an experience when thousands of women of all ages and ethnic backgrounds from around the world, representing their countries, organizations, and causes, descend on New York City and the UN to participate in discussions at CSW events. As you might know, this year's annual topic is “Women Empowered to Implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).” This title in and of itself gave me a lot of hope for actual…

Good evening! Thank you for choosing to spend your time and your weekend here at this conference in our nation’s capital exploring the many ways women of all ages can and do contribute to building a world of genuine and sustainable peace. I've been asked to introduce WFWP International, as well as our work at the United Nations. I'd like to start with the founding. WFWP was founded in 1992 by Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon in Seoul, South Korea with the full support and active participation of her beloved husband Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon. Together they founded numerous…

We are here today to celebrate the advances made towards the equality and empowerment of girls and women. We are also being asked to re-think ways of achieving these global goals. There is no doubt that we are living in a turbulent time in world history. For example, bright young women from England and Canada are dropping out of universities and travelling to Iraq and Syria in order to support fraudulent nation-building. Why? I believe it is because a deep human longing to contribute to justice and change is not being properly addressed in our educational curricula, our institutions and…
