To:  Expression of our Disagreement with inclusion of Iran in the Executive board of UN Women Letter to UN Member States:
November 2, 2010

Your Excellency,
We, the undersigned independent women’s rights activist, feminist and human rights advocates, respectfully urge you to protect the credibility of the new agency called UN Women. Including Iran as a member of the executive board will not only raise concerns over obstructing the work of this agency, but will also result in disengagement and distrust of the women in Iran, the Middle East, and globally as it pertains to the work of the new UN Women. UN Women was hailed and raised hope for the UN to engage in more efficient work to continue to further gender equality, the advancement of women, and accountability of member states to respect the human rights and dignity of millions of women around the world.
