MARCH 2011


March 6, 2011

Sunshine Week is March 13 through 19. In North Carolina a website of interest is www.ncopengov.org. Another site with national information is www.sunshineweek.org. The concept behind Sunshine Week is a common thread in League of Women Voters advocacy - transparency and accountability in government. Sunshine Week is a national effort that was spearheaded by the American Society of News Editors (ASNE). Supporting government response to issues of transparency, the concepts of Sunshine Week find voice in the Freedom of Information Act and in Sunshine Laws that have been enacted in each state. North Carolina has worked in recent years to improve openness in government. That effort is easily seen as one accesses the various state government websites offering information and networking through out each department.

Women’s History Month begins as the world has witnessed the political upheavals in the middle east. The League of Women Voters has a history of bringing together women from around the world through its Global Democracy Program. Since 2005 thirty-five Leagues have hosted 250 women from eight different countries. In 2010 US Leagues hosted leaders from Azerbaijan, Moldova and Tajikistan. The visitors learn from their hosts presentations on accountable governance, and learn about our electoral process from the basics at the precinct level, emphasizing the entire process from registration through voting to posting the results. This year League will work with women from Central Asia and the Caucasus as well as begin a research project on the current civic and political role of women in Cuba. Check www.lwv.org for more information on Global Democracy.

The goal for Women’s History Month is Writing Women Back into History. Women’s achievements are integral to the fabric of our history. Learning about women’s tenacity and creativity throughout the centuries is a source of strength. Recognizing the achievements of women in all facets of life has a huge impact on the development of self-respect and of new opportunities for girls and young women. We can not ignore the vital role that women’s dreams and accomplishments play in our own lives. It is important to understand the lives of our own mothers and grandmothers to give women today the strength and courage to to pursue growth and success in our own times. Check our www.nwhp.org for information and also check www.womenshistorymonth.gov for information and instructional resources on women’s history.

The League of Women Voters through its Global Democracy program engages activists and nongovernmental organizations worldwide. League helps these groups increase their voice in stressing transparency, accountability and good governance in their societies. The League works to expand community influence in public policy-making while helping local citizens build leadership skills. The League of Women Voters is registered as a Private Voluntary Organization with USAID and is part of the Registry of Civil Society Organizations with the Organization of American States. In the last decade the League has worked to promote the political participation of women at the grassroots level in Africa, Ukraine, Bosnia and Paraguay. The League’s Global Democracy Program promotes women’s participation in the political process worldwide through technical support, workshops and venues to network for women interested in gaining access to their country’s political process.
