Especially in light of the lack of agreed conclusions this year, writing our statements and forming advocacy points based on the experiences of women around the world is more important than ever. Ecumenical advocacy at the UN during the CSW depends on feedback from women at the grassroots around the world.  You can download our questionnaire here and send it to ecumencialwomen@gmail.com by Sept. 1 to add your input to our statement!

This questionnaire is now available in Spanish and French as well as English.¬† Fill out the survey in Spanish via The Episcopal Church (you don’t need to be an Episcopalian!), or download the French version.
