On our final day of sessions, the UN Women opened with the same agenda as yesterday by the delegate of Brazil stating the draft resolution. After spending two hours of discussion and revision, the papers were finally merged and an unmoderated caucus was opened to buffer out the differences and review the revisions made. Some of the revisions included paying attention to economic policies in regards to women and to the rural women of the world. The delegate of Spain was particularly happy with the revisions made stating that his ultimate goal was gender equality to get women bigger roles in society. Some tensions arose during the suggestions of amendments with some sponsors against some of the delegates’ suggestions but after multiple unmoderated caucuses, countless revisions, the reading off of the endless revised clauses of the resolution, a motion to vote was declared and great news was met! The two draft resolutions that merged into one finally became official! The resolution passed and most delegates’ desired amendments were met.
