Journalist from Isis International/Manila, Mavic Cabrera-Balleza, was in New York as part of a team of gender and media advocates who came to participate in the 47th Session of the CSW. Mavic and Muthoni Wanyeki of FemNet/Kenya came directly from the AMARC seminar in Kathmandu, Nepal that focused on community radio.
