Greetings GEAR friends,
It has been invigorating to read the messages of support and congratulatory notes over the last two weeks. Finally, we can move forward and make the entity a reality. In the coming weeks, the GEAR Campaign Working Group will share some ideas for next steps and hope that the strong network of GEAR supporters will continue to ensure that the new entity works for all women. We appreciate the variety of messages that have been communicated over gearlist@googlegroups and ask that you now reach out to the focal points in your region for the next stage of mobilization.
Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need contact information for focal points. Attached is the most recent Working Group list.
Furthermore, please visit, http://www.unwomen.org/2010/07/un-creates-new-structure-for-empowerment-of-women/, for the UN Press Release about UN Women in English, French, and Spanish.
We will be in touch shortly with more resources and we thank you for your patience.Best,
