Help for Women from the United Nations

Women Go Global is an easy-to-use, interactive, multimedia CD-ROM on the events that have been shaping the international agenda for women's equality. It offers extensive coverage of the four United Nations women's conferences held in Mexico City, Copenhagen, Nairobi and Beijing, the parallel non-governmental forums, and the 23rd special session of the General Assembly.

The CD-ROM discusses the important role of the UN Commission on the Status of Women, and includes important documents from the United Nations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Also included is a bibliography, links to key website as well as archives on women's history and the profiles of more than 200 key persons participating in the global effort.

thanks for sharing

Hi Brother Gene,

I checked out your blog! Lot's of great info around the mission of making poverty history. Having been raised as a Catholic, I know the force (in mea numbers) the Church brings to movements of this sort. I believe we need as many allies in this international women's movement as we can get. Welcome to the community!

best,

Cynthia Casas

Thanks, Cynthia, and I need your help

You may know this, but I didn't. In 2004 the Vatican published a document Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Catholic Church everything has changed greatly since I joined the Society of Mary.

I want to help as I am able ot this great venture of yours. I read your terms of service. I am hoping to get some stories about people who have brought their problems under control. I would like to post such stories on my blog. My concern is their privacy.

What do you think?

Invite them on!!

My first thought would be to bring them on as we are hearty believers of women speaking for themselves-- unfettered and unedited. Please feel free to pass on our password to these women with these transformative stories.

In the meantime, I'll ask our online community manager about her thoughts on the matter you posted about.

peace,
cynthia

Terrific Idea!

Hi Gene,

I just wanted to say that I think it would be wonderful if you would bring these voices to your PulseWire journal. So looking forward to hearing more!

This is a more difficult question.

Actually I am hoping to get stories from PulseWire Journals to cut and paste into my blog. People who read my blog also need good stories of success.

What are the privacy policies on this?

reposting blogs

I am interested to find out what the answer is from Maria Jett BUT in the mean time: If you want to repost a blog just ask the person who wrote it. Then in your blog you can post a link to the original post...

That has worked for me on blogs outside of this community.

WELCOME to PulseWire :-)

Hey so here is an answer

Hey Gene,
Your pic. may be too big... what is its size? Also, sometimes when you change your picture it does not immediately register on your account. However, it may have been changed and others can see the change. Anyway, I am more than happy to assist you however I can. You can also ask Ankur for help. He is our tech aficionado! Great to have you on board!

cheers,

Brian F-S
