Dear Friends, It is my pleasure to share with you Women’s Learning Partnership’s Spring 2016 Newsletter: The World We Seek. In this issue, we highlight our participation at this year's Women Deliver in Copenhagen, and our exciting conversations with UN Women on how to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and establish a new vision for the global women's movement. We feature five trailblazing initiatives developed at WLP's Institutes for Millennials and Peacebuilding. You will also read the reflections of women from Armenia to Georgia to Ukraine on what it means to them to join a women’s democracy network. Experts brought powerful evidence of the link between discriminatory family laws and violence against women to the launch of our Global Campaign on family law reform at the United Nations 60th Commission on the Status of Women. We witnessed the power of words to change lives at Life Lines: The Poetry of Human Rights, which we co-sponsored with Black Lives Matter and the African Women’s Development Fund in New York. We look forward with great optimism and enthusiasm to the work ahead of us.
