1. NEW! HIGHLIGHT: Vital Voices Ukraine Summit in October 2007 Features Leadership Initiatives for Young Women of Eurasia
---------------------------------------------------------------------

With the words to a new pop song, "Not For Sale", echoing in their ears, women leaders seeking to advance civil society and combat human trafficking in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union were the focus of Vital Voices of Eurasia: A Leadership Summit for Women & Girls, launched by the international nonprofit Vital Voices Global Partnership in Kyiv, Ukraine.

The Washington, DC-based NGO, dedicated to building the capabilities, connections, and credibility of women leaders around the world, opened the second of five high-profile women's training, leadership development, and mentoring Summits it is conducting in different world regions as part of a four-year project, Vital Voices 2010: A Global Leadership Initiative for Women and Girls.

During four days in Kyiv, 150 Eurasia Summit participants from 25 countries were encouraged to seek political and governmental careers by distinguished female mentors such as former Canadian Prime Minister Kim Campbell, Baroness Mary Goudie, Member of the British Parliament, and former U.S. Congresswoman Connie Morella (R-MD,) who has just completed a term as Permanent Representative to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD.) The emerging female leaders will learn corporate and business strategies from top women executives from Boeing Co., Coca Cola Co., Wells Fargo & Co., and LexisNexis; they'll be counseled by prominent women from major international nonprofits, foundations, and government agencies; and they'll mingle with regional officials including Ukraine's First Lady Kateryna Yushchenko and Foreign Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, along with former First Lady and foundation leader Jolenta Kwasniewski of Poland.

"Without the full and equal participation of women, democracy cannot flourish, market economies cannot grow, and nations cannot advance. Global prosperity depends on women having the right to jobs, education, and credit", said United States Senator Hilary Clinton (D-NY,) by video, in a moving message that opened the Summit, which commemorated a conference of 300 international female leaders in Vienna when Mrs. Clinton was First Lady. The agenda of that historic conference, Vital Voices: Women and Democracy, was to explore ways to strengthen the role of women in developing open, democratic societies in the emerging countries of the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. The 1997 conference inspired both the name and the mission of Vital Voices Global Partnership, which has since built a Global Leadership Network of 5,000 women leaders in 85 countries, focusing on three key areas: generating political opportunities, increasing political participation, and protecting human rights.

One of the organization's youngest "vital voices", Ukranian pop singer Ruslana Lyzhchko, winner of the 2004 Eurovision song contest, appeared at a press conference with Vital Voices leaders to announce a joint public awareness campaign to combat human trafficking in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. Ruslana played excerpts from a new song she has written, "Not for Sale", that encourages young women to be wary when shady recruiters approach them with promises of high-paying jobs abroad.

3. ONGOING DISCUSSION: Political will and leadership are fundamental to improving women's access to health services
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Political will and leadership are fundamental to improving women's access to health services. Efforts to increase women's access to health services have fallen short in many developing countries because of underlying economic, political, social and cultural constraints. Parliamentarians are well-placed to promote gender sensitive health policies, whether through legislative mandates, acting as public role models and spokespersons for gender equality and public openness about HIV and AIDS, or supporting development of a sustainable national health infrastructure. What is the situation in your country?

Please share your views with the community.

From the Discussion Board:

The Vice President of Liberia Joseph Boakai at a Health Initiative kickoff event stated "We must uphold the rights of women in our country…instead of abusing them." Gender- based Violence against women is interconnected to women's access to health care services in Liberia. Post- conflict health care initiatives include establishing a wealth of mental health related services "stigma - related" health topics in the past. Liberian women see our head of state (Ellen Johnson - Sirlief) as symbolic of women empowerment and hope that she and her government will implement health care policies eventually decrease our Maternal and Child mortality rates, and eventually increase the life expectancy of ALL Liberians.

In Tanzania women are encouraged by the government to trust their power and abilities for gender balance. Underlying economic is the obstacle which contributes bribery sexual bribery, humility, constraints and misbehaving including lack of education, hence the increase of HIV/AIDS among women. Cultural contraints are decreasing. The goverment should is responsible for empowering the women.

In India, there is still inadequate discussion about HIV/AIDS and an engendered response to it. While there is more information about how and why women are more vulnerable to HIV/AIDS, the accompanying policy discussion is missing. And, despite the fact that India is a signatory to the 1994 ICPD Plan of Action, a life cycle approach to policy and programming for women's health is missing. India is a vast country and health is a state subject. It requires a great deal of centre-state coordination to pull off adequate women's health policies and practices. At this moment, political will and leadership are missing to improve women's health issues.
Anita Anand Consultant / independent. India. Date posted: Nov 09, 2007 11:04 AM

Through institutions such as the transnational corporation and the state, the global economy generates capital largely through the exploitation of labor, but it is not indifferent to the gender and ethnicity of that labor. Gender and racial ideologies have been deployed to favor white male workers and exclude others, but they have also been used to integrate and exploit the labor power of women and of members of disadvantaged racial and ethnic groups in the interest of profit-making. In the current global environment of open economies, new trade regimes, and competitive export industries, global accumulation relies heavily on the work of women, both waged and unwaged, in formal sectors and in the home, in manufacturing, and in public and private services. In this event of integration, India's policies and programmes of national women development provide immense support for women health and thereby good health of the whole society.

4. NEW! Resource of Interest: Women's rights-based approach to climate change
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Women living in poverty are the most threatened by the dangers that stem from global warming. They are also key actors in ensuring their communities' ability to cope with and adapt to climate change. When we approach climate change from the perspective of women, we see the ways that women are made vulnerable to threats associated with climate change, and that women's skills and leadership are crucial for people's survival and recovery. Therefore, defending the full range of women's human rights within the context of addressing climate change is essential both to protecting women themselves and to cultivating their capacity for leadership-on which so many lives depend.
