DA Global Women's Caucus Leadership:
Letter from the Editor
Our bodies, our rights! This month, we celebrate women’s independent choices and freedoms. Women all over the world are largely dependent on the decisions of a few, and much of the time those few do not have women’s interests and rights in mind. Consider joining our caucus as we fight the good fight, not only for our sisters and daughters, but for our brothers and sons as well. The Global Women’s Caucus has many ways for you to join: 1. Register to vote 2. Become a GWC member 3. Volunteer with one of our action teams 4. Start a local caucus. We welcome and look forward to working with you!
Scroll down for important updates on our growing caucus, insightful articles on our research, and the June Newsletter quiz! Don’t forget to check out our Artist’s Corner. Lastly, we would love your participation in our #MyStoryGWC campaign, where you can connect with other members through shared stories to highlight the issues most important to us.

Fifty-one years ago, Frank Kameny coined the adage “Gay is good” to offset the historic anti-gay agenda that news, media and religious institutions have peddled since the first European settlers dropped anchors on American shores. Kameny’s alliterate campaign was inspired by “Black is Beautiful,” the movement conceived of by civil rights organizer, Stokely Carmichael. This is a testament to the longstanding relationship between minority groups as none of us can truly feel progress while any of us are left behind.
Violence Against Women Team
Volunteer Briefing Meetings
Join us on August 16, 2021, at 12 PM ET / 6 PM Paris for the VAW Volunteer Briefing Meeting.
(Monthly briefings/meetings through December 20, 2021)
The Violence Against Women Team is conducting a research project addressing the situation of American Women and their children who may encounter situations of gender-based violence while living or travelling abroad. Please join us at a briefing session to learn more about the project and to see if it may be a volunteer effort in which you'd like to be involved. We are starting in 5 countries but will be expanding as soon as we are able to leverage the learning we gained exploring the initial countries. The basic requirements are curiosity, organization, determination and a desire to help better the situation for victims of violence.
