This section needs sources to back up its claims; if they can't be found, it should be removed, per WP:V. Robofish (talk) 13:16, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
Agreed. So who removes it? Nicmart (talk) 00:51, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
I've removed the section and pasted it below. Aside from the lack of sources it isn't even written in coherent English. For example, the first sentence in the second paragraph is a sentence fragment. The "as the World Executive Committee convened for elections" implies that something else happened, no such event is mentioned. Also, the last sentence of the first paragraph should be integrated with the previous sentence. In general, both paragraphs are rather choppily written. --Khajidha (talk) 01:42, 15 May 2012 (UTC)
In 1978, during the presidency of Nita Barrow, Elizabeth Palmer, the World YWCA’s General Secretary of twenty-two years retired. One candidate to replace her was Brigalia Bam, a South African YWCA Programme Secretary for Natal and Zululand, and Assistant National Executive Secretary of the World Affiliated YWCA of South Africa, the creator of the Women’s Unit at the World Council of Churches and Moderator on Education and Renewal. Bam was black.
As the World Executive Committee convened for elections, Erica Brodie, the former National Executive Director of the YWCA of New Zealand and two year member of the World staff. Overwhelmed and unable to coordinate the World staff, Brodie, who was white, resigned in 1982. Another white woman replaced Brodie. Even though she was black, Brigalia Bam was never elected General Secretary. Only white women held the post until 1998. Since 1998, only black women have held the post of General Secretary, every white candidate for the post having been passed over.
Is The Hon. Mrs. Montague Weldgrave the same person as the Hon. Mrs. Waldegrave (née Constance Marion Brodie), (married 1898, died 1936) wife of Montague Waldegrave, 5th Baron Radstock (1867-1953)? If yes, the spelling of her name could be aligned and some links made between this article and her husband's. Whiteghost.ink (talk) 09:49, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

I've reverted edits by the above account, which mirrored those of blocked account World YWCA (talk·contribs). Both are COI accounts that ignore warnings and persist in removing sourced content, adding unsourced text copied from the YWCA's website. I've requested page protection. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 12:51, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
