    The Global Women's Rights Awards are given annually to a select few individuals who have contributed significantly – often against great odds and at great personal risk – to advance the rights of women and girls and to increase awareness of the injustices women face on account of their gender.

    For nearly thirteen years, the Feminist Majority Foundation has been a part of this most remarkable organization and its work for women’s rights in the United States and around the world, especially our efforts to help the women and girls of Afghanistan reclaim their full rights for which the Feminist Majority Foundation was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002.

    But now, with the Taliban’s resurgence in Afghanistan, our work takes on a new urgency. Girls’ schools are again being destroyed and local warlords are again imposing draconian restrictions on women. President Obama has promised a change in the direction of U.S. policy in Afghanistan and we intend to use every opportunity to make sure Afghan women and girls are not forgotten in this renewed attention to the country’s security and development needs.

    We have seen first-hand the Feminist Majority Foundation’s powerful work, and that is why the two of us are honored to serve for a fifth year as the Co-Chairs for the Global Women’s Rights Awards. The awards will be presented at a dinner and gala on April 29, 2009 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

    We will be in touch shortly about whether you are able to be a Sponsor. For your convenience, we have enclosed a response form for you to return. We look forward to talking with you soon and seeing you April 29th, 2009.
