Dear Friends,

This year has been a productive and promising one. Despite challenges and barriers to women’s rights and sustainability, there have been wonderful flickers of progress toward gender equality and a more equitable world that will continue to inspire our work in 2013. It is our extraordinary partners, from global to local levels, on nearly every continent and many islands scattered in between, to whom we owe gratitude.

WEDO takes this time to celebrate all of them – all of you – who have devoted another year to ensuring that tomorrow will be better than today, that the world can and will be more equal, more just, more peaceful.

This season, contribute to promoting women’s rights, advancing women’s leadership and realizing gender equality for a healthy and peaceful planet by making a holiday gift to WEDO. Interested in supporting our work year-round? Become a Friend of WEDO today.

From all of us to you, thank you for your support and solidarity. 

Wishing you peace and joy in 2013,

The WEDO team
