A big family, a reading addiction, and the occasional celebrity scandal are the ingredients of life that create one woman's opinion on just about everything.

EQUALITY NOW


What follows came in my email today. It's noteworthy. I hope you'll take a look.



Dear Friend,


Equality Now’s Executive Director, Taina Bien-Aimé, was quoted in a column today (January 15, 2008) by renowned journalist Bob Herbert of the New York Times. Mr. Herbert’s column, titled “Politics and Misogyny,” highlights various forms of violations of women’s rights in the United States, including violence and sex trafficking, and demands that the presidential campaigns address women’s rights issues in a more concerted manner.


Everyday women and girls endure grave human rights abuses here in the US and all around the world. For over fifteen years Equality Now has strived for gender equality and worked to ensure that women’s rights are made a priority issue of concern for political leaders both in the US and internationally.


We urge you to read the New York Times column: here. *

Thank you for your support and the opportunity to share this story with you.


Warm regards,

Jessica Neuwirth

President
