I was honored to meet 23 delegates from four countries who are in Honolulu this week to take part in the “Multidisciplinary Intellectual Exchange for Women Leaders.” The women are here from Japan, South Korea, the Philippines and the U.S. I had the pleasure of hosting them at College Hill Monday night, where we continued our discussions on issues such as women’s human rights, laws and policy options to respond to international trafficking of women and girls.
The women have been meeting at Kapiʻolani Community College for four days of discussions. Hawaiʻi’s First Lady Nancie Caraway, a Human Rights Fellow, gave a presentation today. The Multidisciplinary Intellectual Exchange wraps on Thursday.
