The Tribune
The last issue of The Tribune (Number 56), Global/Local Strategies for Change: Women Take on the World was mailed in May 1997. We are currently working on the production of the next issue Reclaiming Science and Technology(working title; Number 57), which will be mailed mid-July.

Faxnet/GlobalNet: Evaluation
GlobalFaxnet, and its email edition, GlobalNet, keep you in touch week after week with the global womenfs movement. From its early bulletins providing information about the constantly changing plans for the Beijing f95 meetings -- and especially those that mobilized women around the change of site of NGO f95 Forum -- Faxnet has evolved into a valuable source of information on UN policies and events (e.g., Commission on the Status of Women, CEDAW), monitoring initiatives around the Platform for Action, upcoming conferences, global campaigns, and other issues important to women worldwide.

Global Faxnet is now at a critical juncture. Additional funds will have to be raised to keep these weekly broadcasts alive. You can help in this effort by letting IWTC know what you like about Global Faxnet and providing feedback on how this service could be improved. We are collecting opinions from Faxnet recipients all over the world. We want to know what you think.
