Yours truly had the honor of speaking yesterday on the role of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, also the topic of my lecture Wednesday at the ICC, and of previous presentations in Ottawa and Chautauqua.
At a reception, a colleague admitted discomfort with the pink cast of IntLawGrrls blog. It's a question with which we've grappled since our founding, as a site where women could contribute their voices to public discourse on matters of international law, policy, and practice, above the slogan "it's our world, after all."
No one would be happier than this 'Grrl if there were no need for such a dedicated space.
But then a notice like this catches the eye, and reminds us that, alas, such a space remains necessary, in our world.
