Speaking Out for Women — at the United Nations
Becca Bishopric ‘11 and senior Anuja Acharya (Political Science and English) were fellows during the past year with WomenNC.org. They each spent time researching a topic dealing with rural women in North Carolina and wrote a paper on those findings. This week, they're in New York presenting their research on women's issues to the United Nations. The pair will represent WomenNC.org, a nonprofit organization that formed out of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women. They will spend a few days attending U.N. workshops and seminars covering issues affecting rural women around the world. On Thursday, they will present their findings. Acharya is a CHASS Dean's Scholarship recipient.
