5th World Conference on Women
VERY IMPORTANT: This is an opportunity for all of us to participate and make a difference:
Thank you emails needed to UN Secretary General for proposing a 5th World Conference on Women.
From Jean Shinoda Bolen:
It’s now been over a month since the Secretary General and President of the UN General Assembly said that it was high time for 5WCW and proposed that there be one in 2015. Since the March 8 Joint Statement, they have heard from those opposed to 5WCW.
We need to send a FLOOD of emails and letters to the SG & PGA, from individuals who will list their affiliation and positions with organizations. The next step will be to get the organizations you belong to—to officially support 5WCW. Full text of Joint Statement: http://www.un.org/sg/statements/index.asp?nid=5904
Your email should go to: President of General Assembly Al-Nasser <email@example.com>, Secretary General Ban Ki-moon <firstname.lastname@example.org>
with cc: Executive Director UN Women Michelle Bachelet <email@example.com> and me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please write your own emails or letters right away, write your networks, and get them on it!
Very simple letter or email.
Send thanks and appreciation to the President of the General Assembly and the Secretary General of the United Nations for their joint statement on March 8, 2012 in which they proposed UN 5th World Conference on Women.
Praise them for taking this initiative and leadership.
Encourage them to continue to support 5WCW and assure them that there is support for what they are doing.
