One in 3 women may suffer from abuse and violence in her lifetime. This is an appalling human rights violation. But we can put a stop to this.
As the Goodwill Ambassador of the United Nations Development Fund for Women, UNIFEM, I am asking you to "say NO to violence against women" by joining our internet-based global advocacy effort. Widespread participation by people in every country sends a strong message to governments around that world that ending violence against women must be a top priority.
Please help us demonstrate that hundreds of thousands — even millions — demand action and insist on resources for programs that prevent, protect and provide services for survivors. How can you do it? By adding your name to our book ... by sending on to friends, family and colleagues so they can join.
I became UNIFEM's Goodwill Ambassador to amplify the voices of the women and girls who have been subjected to violence and abuse. That is why I was the first to sign up my name for this important campaign. Please add your name to mine. It's easy and it's fast. A special website has been created at http://www.saynotoviolence.org/ where you will be able to sign on.
The more names we collect, the stronger our case to put ending violence against women on the top of the agenda and making the world a safer place for women. Thank you for joining me.

This is a great place to meet and exchange ideas, food for thought, a benchmark for whoever comes into gender issue and why not even where everyone can give a hand.
But not only, OG wants to be a tool to create a new intelligibility of women's everyday life to build a new awareness of gender female, proposing ideas which could give us a diferent way to see things across us that we usually see with other interpretive readings.
This blog would cover, amateur level, gender issues, aimed at women because reflect the right to their own identity, both men, because they are involved, and not excluded from the path that women must do to gain their conscience.
But here we also want your help: If you are interested in your say, send your contribution, and if the arguments will be sensitive and respectful of others and its content valid, it will be posted.
A Good Start for all of us...

Benvenidas y Bienvenidos...
Benvenute e Benvenuti...
Ma non solo, OG vuole essere anche uno strumento per creare una nuova intelligibilità del quotidiano femminile per costruire così una nuova coscienza di “genere” femminile, proponendo spunti ai quali ci si avvicina di solito con altre letture interpretative.
Ma qui vogliamo anche il vostro coinvolgimento: se siete interessate a dire la vostra, mandate un vostro contributo e se gli argomenti saranno ritenuti rispettosi dell'altrui sensibilità e i contenuti validi sarete postati.
Un Buon inizio a tutte/i noi...
