GLI to attend UN Council on women

Marcella Park

Five members of the Girls Learn International Club will take a trip the first week of March to the United Nations Council on the Status of Women held every Women’s History Month in New York.

This will be the second time the club has gone on this trip after visiting the same council last year.

The theme of this year’s council will be violence against women and girls.

“Because the theme is difficult, we expect to be challenged by what we learn this year,” club sponsor and Gender Studies teacher Malina Mamigonian said.
