UN Event Honors Founders of First Women’s Global Financial Network

Women and men who met in Mexico City in 1975 at the first UN Conference for Women, and resolved to work together to bring women everywhere into the formal financial markets, were honored at the United Nations on December 5, 2012.  The event also formally launched Michaela Walsh’s book, Founding a Movement.

Almost 400 people gathered at the panel discussion, which was sponsored by the Permanent Mission of the Kingdom of The Netherlands to the UN.  Institutions and citizens of The Netherlands played an important role in the history of Women’s World Banking, which was incorporated there in 1980.
