Romanian Fulbrighter @ Women in the World Summit

Fulbright scholar Andreea Voina attended the 8th edition of the Women in the World Summit, held in New York (April 5th - 7th), the world's largest conference with and for women. The event marked Hillary Clinton's first interview after the November elections, and world leaders like Justin Trudeau and Nicola Sturgeon pitched their ideas about bringing more women into politics. One main takeaway from this event is something Youtube's CEO, Susan Wojcicki, shared, that "power is transferred by those who have it," which should make us more aware of our potential as change-makers, to empower ourselves and others.

Just Out

The volume Cămășile (Gowns), by Ioana Ieronim, is just out from the LiterNet online press (http://editura.liternet.ro/carte/341/Ioana-Ieronim/Camasile.html), with cover photograph by Kathleen Laraia McLaughlin, Fulbright Alumna, from the American photographer's monograph album The Color of Hay: The Peasants of Maramures. This particular photograph was even the catalyst for writing Gowns, a play on today’s changes and challenges facing Romania’s still surviving age-old rural traditions.  
Kathleen Laraia McLaughlin was a Fulbright Scholar in Romania, 2002-2003.
Ioana Ieronim was American Program Director at the Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission (1999-2003) and Interim Executive Director (2001-2002).
