Today the UN Women Fundraising Director Janelle Weissman spoke with Rotary Club of Canberra Sunrise about UN Women's work. A number of members were keen to register their support in signing the #HeForShe pledge (see photo).
Janelle, a former Rotary Youth Exchange student in Belgium and a Peace Scholar, spoke passionately about social justice work in the Pacific region, noting much still remains to be done in many Pacific nations in areas including empowerment of women and reducing violence against women.
