I just received this email from Women for Women International. WFW is I first learned of IWD. Tomorrow, March 5th, there will be a global teleconference. I am sure it is going to be both interesting and enlightening.

All I did to get it here was cut and paste. I don't know if the "click here's" in the message will still work. If not go to www. for more information.
