UN Civil Society Conference – Salt Lake City, US – speech by Sister Cynthia Mathew CJ

At a recent UN Civil Society Conference in Salt Lake City in the United States, Sister Cynthia Mathew CJ was a keynote speaker at one of the side events at the conference.  Sister Cynthia was introducing the documentary film, “Mahila – A Women’s Movement Rising”. Her topic was the Dalit people of India, often known as the “untouchables”, who are some of the most marginalized and discriminated against in the world.  They comprise over 16% of the population of India. Prior to her current mission at the UN, Sister Cynthia, who is a lawyer, spent much of her time and energy working among Dalit women and children and taking up their cases in relations to issues such as sexual and domestic violence and child labour, in particular bonded labour.
Sister Kathryn Keigher IBVM, who has recently spent a month’s internship with the joint IBVM/CJ UN NGO) wrote, “Cynthia spoke with confidence and authority whilst being very aware of the sensitivity of her subject.  She and Cecilia (Cecilia O’Dwyer IBVM, the other member of the joint UN NGO) are very well respected in and around the corridors of powers at the UN and among the religious and friends”.
