We held high energy conversations with 140 women from 18 other US states and 12 countries about moving our agendas forward locally and globally toward a 5th World Conference on Women in 2013 or sooner - sharing 'winning strategies' with each other. Many were young women like the interns from Seton Hall University who managed logistics, sign-ins and filming for us - so important in gathering the women for action.
