Almost there!

Dear sisters

Oh the utter relief I had when I visited the link to the Module 4 submissions and discovered I was not the only one with a late submission (HUGE GRIN ON MY FACE RIGHT NOW).

As some of you may be aware, I was gone from Zimbabwe for a while to attend the 51st CEDAW Session and represent Zimbabwean civil society as we presented our shadow report and made oral statements. That went very well and I am happy to say the Concluding Observations were quite impressive. Should they be implemented fully, then women in Zimbabwe are set to have their status improved.

I then took a short vacation to France where I hoped to meet Monica but unfortunately as you may know she is not feeling well and could not meet me. I still managed to seep in the abundance of art, culture and history that France had to offer.

It is no wonder then the huge task of compiling my Module 4 assignment took me so long. I also had problems getting information as the subject was sensitive. This must have been the hardest assignment for me.

So we are almost there and it has been a great ride being with you all.

** Please do not pitch your op-eds to more than one publishing house at a time like I did. It is unethical to do so and I did it out of complete ignorance but just in case you did not know, DON'T DO IT!

Keep well and GOOD LUCK with your Module 5.

Hi Usha

Great to know all is well with you too.

I am yet to read the group's op-eds and feature stories but from the comments coming from Scott and Rachael, that will be an interesting venture because the stories are great, I gather.
