Ecumenical Women needs to hear from you in preparation for the 56th Commission on the Status of Women at the UN!  The theme is “The empowerment of rural women and their role in poverty and hunger eradication, development, and current challenges.”  As Ecumenical Women in New York City and beyond gather to prepare advocacy documents and talking points, we need you help gathering as much information as possible from women in rural areas.  Please download this survey and send it out to your networks.  To be incorporated in advocacy work, the surveys must be returned by August 1, 2011 to ecumenicalwomen(at)gmail(dot)com.
