Delicate issues

10 November 2005
Dear Sarah and wonderful colleagues at Open Democracy.
Greetings from Durban, South Africa.
Please I wish to express my sincere appreciation for the opportunity to participate in the blog. I must admit this was my first experience and I enjoyed it tremendously. I learnt a lot from various conflict issues for women in other parts of the globe. Interestingly, most of the delicate issues we experience as women are very similar and hopefully we can share strategies for successful interventions from our various contexts. So please could you provide the list of blog members with their contact details, possibly their email contacts so that we can keep in touch with each other beyond the blog. Possibly we can also link them to our networks in their specific parts of the world.
I would really love to participate in such an event again, and I have gotten so used to all of you. I miss Alexandria’s contributions, hope she is feeling much better.
Congratulations on a successful blog and more achievements for the future!
Yours kindly,

US election: what's at stake for the rest of us?

Our editor-in-chief, Mary Fitzgerald, is on the ground in key battleground states ahead of the US election.

There's never been more at stake. But the pandemic has kept many foreign journalists away. Hundreds of international observers who normally oversee US elections aren't there.

Hear Mary describe what she's seeing and hearing across the country, from regular citizens to social justice activists to right-wing militias arming themselves for election day.

Plus: hear from the journalists behind openDemocracy's latest big 'follow-the-money' investigation, which lifts the lid on how Trump-linked groups have exported their culture wars across the world.

Join us for a free live discussion on Thursday 29 October, 5pm UK time/1pm EDT.
