IWTC  has received the following letter, addressed to all readers of the 
IWTC Women's GlobalNet.

Dear Readers of IWTC Women's GlobalNet:

We would like to extend a special invitation to all of you to 
participate in the upcoming Association for Women's Rights in 
Development (AWID) Forum in Guadalajara, Mexico, 3-6 October, 2002 - 
"Reinventing Gloablization" - designed to be the most international and 
diverse forum yet.

The AWID Forum is now the largest recurring conference on gender and 
development in the world, outside of the UN system.  It is a unique 
opportunity for the global women's movement to assess their successes 
and failures and forge new strategies. At the forum you will meet with 
leading and committed gender activists, policy makers and academics.  
You will be part of a process that seeks to identify and address the 
most relevant issues of the day.

The International Planning Committee of AWID, consisting of renowned 
feminists from around the world, is now soliciting proposals for 
participation at the 2002 Forum. We are also actively seeking 
contributions from young women and men to present at the Forum, so 
please encourage students to submit a proposal. The deadline for 
submissions is December 31, 2001. We encourage you to visit our website 
at: <> which has the full details on the Call for 
Participation process, more information regarding AWID and exciting 
submissions from our members around the world. 

Information on the Call for Participation is available on the AWID 
website, where there are versions in English, French and Spanish. If you 
would like a copy of those languages for distribution, please let me 
know. If you have any questions about our upcoming Forum, the Call for 
Participation process or our programs in general, please do not hesitate 
to get in touch.

We look forward to receiving your proposals and hope to see you in 

Warmest regards,

Shareen Gokal
