On April 4-5, 2013 K.C. Ho '15 attended the Women in the
World Summit in New York City. The summit, which was hosted by
Newsweek and The Daily Beast, featured panels that
celebrated the accomplishments of women's rights activists from
around the globe and addressed a range of issues including
education, sexual violence, human trafficking, and maternal health.
For K.C., the summit served as a reminder of the importance of
maintaining awareness of the serious issues facing women around
the world. In her words, "The most important thing I carry with me
from the conference is that…it is about keeping it in our minds,
even if we like to put things away when we face something
overwhelming. As a SWGS and PJHC student, I think a lot about these
overwhelming issues. But I have the luxury of putting these
problems away sometimes. As for some women, these are issues that
they live and breathe every day, problems that they cannot simply
put away, and that is what keeps me going."
