IWTC GlobalNet

News and developments about the Fourth World Conference and NGO Forum on Women

The Global FaxNet/GlobalNet is coordinated by the International Women's Tribune Centre (IWTC). It builds upon the original WOMENET fax network of 28 regional women's media networks and has added many others in the worldwide mobilization effort around the NGO Forum site change.. The Global FaxNet/Global Net currently reaches over 450 groups or information multipliers via fax and email.

**Where to find IWTC.GlobalNet**

All GlobalNet alerts will also be posted in the following conferences/lists:

APC conferences

Mailing lists

If you subscribe to beijing95-l or to beijing-conf, please let us know and we can remove your name from the list. If not, you will receive the alerts twice.

If you are on an APC-affiliated conference and wish to browse the alerts there instead of receiving them in your mail box, please let us know and we will remove your name from the list.

If you have questions or concerns about the list or how it works, you can contact IWTC at <[email protected]> or call us at 212-687-8633.

**Receiving previous GlobalNet alerts**

Most globalnet alerts have been posted to the APC conferences and lists mentioned above. We are working on finding a single place (perhaps a gopher site or World Wide Web site) to put all the alerts for easy reference. We will let you know when this is set-up.

**Responding to or commenting on GlobalNet alerts**

We ask that you please send comments or responses to the GlobalNet alerts to either the APC conferences in which they appear or to one of the two Beijing-related lists. This way more people can benefit from your ideas- and it will save us lots of time and energy.

Thanks!!! We look forward to hearing from you!!
