We women of the South, chosen by regional meetings of the Women to Women Linking Project in Africa, Latin America, South-East Asia, South Asia, and the Middle East to participate in the Global Meeting of Women Linking for Change, held in Bangkok from 20-23 February 1994 are concerned that there is an increasing concentration of power in the North, resulting in the feminisation of poverty all over the globe. With the sharp rise of fundamentalism and domestic and communal violence, there is devaluation of human life, respect, and dignity. These processes are making women more powerless and our struggles for survival are becoming more difficult.
