On Thursday February 24 Hillary Clinton’s Special Adviser on Global Women’s Issues, Ms. Melanne Verveer is due to give a presentation to the ongoing session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW). She will be preceded by an earlier address from China’s ‘Minister For Forced Sterilizations, Ms. Song Xiuyan who, as a Minister for the All China Women’s Federation, is responsible for promoting, organizing and implementing China’s highly coercive population control program, will be speaking upon women’s equality, education and rights!
Please join the action to brief Ms. Verveer on the issue of violations caused by China’s population policies, and the troubling silence which has greeted this subject from the CSW.
Please use the following sample letter to draft your own and email to: Ms. Melanne Verveer firstname.lastname@example.org
Dear Ms Verveer,
I hope you may support the call that the CSW gives meaningful examination and exposure to the issue of China’s coercive population control program and the serious human rights violation it generates, which are featured in the attached document. Furthermore I would hope that your office committed to women’s human rights will challenge China on this matter, and demand an explanation why China’s formal response on its implementation of the aforementioned instruments failed to feature this serious area of concern affecting women in China, and the occupied lands of Tibet and East Turkestan.
