Thursday 20th August – 9 months, 4 days
I never talked about here how proud I was of the CEDAW delegation. Apparently a lot of people turned up to their hearing in New York, they were surprised. I’m not, Timor is a bit of a darling of the UN and it was their very first hearing, after all. The delegation crowed a bit, apparently nobody turned up to Tuvalu’s hearing. Poor old Tuvalu. Hit by climate change *and* nobody wants to give them money to prepare for international development reporting.
Anyway, they made it through, and the Concluding Comments are extremely useful, I think. I’m really pleased I got to be part of this process.
