The WomenAction 2000 initiative aims to cooperate and build on existing networks and collaborative partnerships. To this end, we have a pro-active policy to outreach to and work with important UN and NGO networks -especially those who are critical to the Beijing+5 Review Process:
To be a global information, communication and media network that enables NGOs to actively engage in the Beijing+5 review process with the long term goal of women's empowerment, with a special focus on women and media.
WomenAction 2000 Project Goal:
