http://www.wunrn.com/powerpoint/Women_Poverty_11.pps from Women’s UN Report Network (WUNRN) This is a good link to use for updated information. They provide information and links on a weekly basis. You can use the powerpoint in your work to provide a global perspective. Having looked at this Powerpoint would you consider signing the signature campaign for the implementation of a Social Protection Floor Initiative? Michelle Bachelete, Executive Director of UN Women, chaired the ILO’s Social Protection Floor Advisory Group and handed over the report entitled ‘Social Protection Floor: For a Fair and Inclusive Globalization’ to the Secretary General Ban Ki Moon on Thursday October 27th. Towards the end of her address she noted that the NGO Committee for Social Development had an on-line Signature Campaign in support of the Social Protection Floor. Become an advocate for the Social Protection Floor Initiative – urge your community groups to sign. http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/signature-campaign-social-protection-floor.html To have more details information and access to the report check out http://www.unwomen.org/2011/10/social-protection-floor-for-a-fair-and-inclusive-globalization/ The webcast will also become available in a few days.
Thank sister Winifred, this is very useful, I will share with my sister from Latin America.
Marta you are quick off the mark! Apologies that all this information is not in Spanish but you would have very little translation to do to have the Powerpoint in Spanish. The link for the signature campaign in Spanish is on the website. I did hear that the actual page for signing on was not in Spanish. I wonder if you could do a translation and send to the network to make it easier for them.

Maybe if this in Spanish in an e-mail it might help. I have prepared a flyer. I will send to you in Word Format and maybe you could put this information in the second box to increase interest and willingness to sign. Much of the information I have says that the Latin American countries are on track. But we need signatures. Blessings and gratitude, Winifred
