The new Women’s Letter is here. It focuses on the Advocacy program «Women’s Human Rights, faith-based» of Mission 21, which was presented to the public in 2016. In the Women’s Letter you will find texts that resulted from the launching event as well as articles written by women who participated in the Advocacy workshops in Basel and Geneva. Amongst others, Vistamika Wangka gives a very personal insight into lessons learnt from her advocacy work with Indonesian domestic workers in Hong Kong. Melania Mrema Kyando reports about the challenges and achievements on the long way to an HIV/Aids-free generation in Tanzania. Silvia Regina de Lima Silva writes about the painful reality of femicide in Latin America, but also about the strong wind of change she feels.

We want to thank everyone who made the current edition of the Women’s Letter possible and we are happy to welcome in our team our colleague Sibylle Dirren, specialist for Advocacy. This Women’s Letter is dedicated to Rev. Ruth Epting who passed away on June 16, 2016 and to everybody who is committed to gender justice and fighting for human rights.
