Delegations present their resolutions. (Blanca Martínez)
It is a truth universaly acknoledge that every spanish person likes dancing whatever they have to, but if we speak of Daddy Yankee, millenials get absolutely crazy. And that’s what happened today on UN WOMEN, among other things, of course. Multiculturalism is being one of the most important issues in this committee. This is what this is really about. Delegates are having a good time, they are relaxed and international partnerships are finally being built.
Since the first draft resolution went public this morning, delegates have had five unmoderated cocus to discuss about what they want to include on the final document. France, Switzerland, Vietnam, Egypt and Algeria were the first on exposing their draft. They have included measures like working with UNICEF to give children the education they deserve (especially women, due to the difficulties they have in this issue). Between some interventions by other colleagues and many more carnations and laughs that the day before, delegates have focused on women’s security by creating shelters where females can live in case their life is in risk. For instance, women and girls who are being prostituted.
Nonetheless, delegates haven’t get the final resolutions yet because they couldn’t reach an agreement. Despite having an agreement in a possible alliance with the countries said before, Francia seems to have left the pact and one new international relation has born, this time with UK at the heading. Delegates have consumed the time on schedule, but they really had fun dancing several french songs or even the very well-known Ya no quiero ná, from Lola Indigo. Our chairs have also participated dancing sevillanas while people on the room clapped them.
Time is pressing and our delegates only have one hour and a half tomorrow to establish the final resolutions and vote the final document. We hope our delegates have enough time to have fun tonight at Netflix party, but women need help and they are waiting for their final measures. We don’t want to squeze you in, but you’re now superheroes and the world is looking forward to listen your proposals.
