UNIFEM President in Ruscombe

United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM): Working for Women's Empowerment and Gender Equality

Periodically this blog briefly covers some of the people who live in the ward - well one I've missed so far is The President of the UK National Committee of UNIFEM who lives in Ruscombe - UNIFEM is the women’s fund at the United Nations and it provides financial and technical assistance to innovative programmes and strategies to foster women’s empowerment and gender equality. Zarin Hainsworth, who some will know as she is also Chair of the Ruscombe Brook Action Group, was appointed May last year to the UNIFEM role and is also Chair at Bahai Council for England.

UNIFEM have a conference planned at Ebley Mill for 15th December so get in touch if you want more info. Also UNIFEM are currently supporting a campaign to stop violence towards women - you can see UNIFEMs Goodwill Ambassador Nicole Kidman's short appeal and sign their petition here:
