"It has been a very rewarding meeting for me.   First Caroline Themm, Kathy Mayer and I met and took a tour, then had lunch together with UN Rep Anne Yedowitz, in the UN as I wanted to reminisce my time there for the UN Special Session, Women 2000,Beijing+5.   (My report was printed in the TIS, then).

"Then I met with Leonia Sagasta, IGU Manhattan Club, Barbara Costican and Anne Taylor for dinner.   I enjoyed our meeting very much.   Barbara and Anne are both young members and contributing to the club so much and Leonia a perfect lady and IGU.   I felt very priviledged meeting them and exchanging views and projects.   All in all I enjoyed it tremendously and was impressed with the work they are doing.
