Student presents research to United Nations Commission on the Status of Women … and to you

Katie Starr (International Studies and French, ’11) traveled to New York recently to present her research on sex trafficking in North Carolina at the 55th annual United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW). Now she’s sharing her research–and her United Nations experience–with the campus community.

“The conference brought thousands of women from around the world together to discuss women’s global issues,” she said. “To be in a room where one woman from Mozambique is sharing her experience on technological education with women from France, Britain, and Moldova, while a woman from Bahrain raises her hand to comment, is truly an amazing experience. It shows our ability to share ideas no matter where we come from.”

Starr will speak at 7:00, April 28, in D.H. Hill Library. Read more about Starr’s experience.
