WBII International Women’s Day Highlights 2012

The WBII 2012 International Women’s Day event at the Bel-Air Hotel was an extraordinary evening! The keynote speaker, Silvia Fernandez, Judge at the International Criminal Court gave a moving and memorable speech that provided some tangible proof and reassurance that significant progress for women in the area of human rights is in fact being made and is therefore possible.We very much appreciate that she took the time from a very busy schedule, while presiding over a very important case to spend the evening with us. Her talk was so informative and relevant and she is such a warm person; she made the evening truly remarkable.

Thanks to everyone who attended the event and especially to all of the contributors and participants in the first ever WBII silent auction. We raised over 1400 euro on the night and already have some contributors lining up for next year. Congratulations to all WBII Members and to the Executive Committee on another successful event!

Judge Fernandez was certainly inspiring, and learning how women & grass roots led to formation of ICC was an eye opener! Congrats to all involved in organising this … look forward already to next year’s event!
