UN in snow 1It’s the first of March, which, as you know, is the month that we say comes in like a lion and out like a lamb,” New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Sunday. “It’s pretty clear that the lions are getting ready to roar.”

New York City, and therefore also the United Nations headquarters, received as much as a foot of snow on the first day of the CSW today.  And with many international delegates, who often come from places where it never snows, it promises to be an exciting day — both in terms of the weather and in terms of the advocacy.

At Ecumenical Women, we encourage our delegates to come to CSW much like a lion — but we hope you go out that way, too!
