Resources on Issues Related to Women in Haiti

Dear Friends at PotoFanm+Fi and World Pulse,

On the one-year anniversary of the earthquake that devastated Haiti, I am thinking of you all and also hoping that we will reconvene and move forward together to address the deep-rooted challenges facing women there, including domestic and sexual violence, poverty, and lack of political representation.

Below are some resources coming into my box lately, including a "spiffed-up" Gender Shadow Report, truly our finest hour as a collective. Note also Bev Bell's recent articles, as posted to WP.

With heartfelt wishes for a wonderful new year! Kenbe fem, Janet
