Agency for International Development (Dept. of State), Washington, DC. Bureau for Technical Assistance.
This directory of women's groups is designed to provide basic contacts for communication among women's organizations, resource groups, and the international development community. Questionnaires were sent to organizations that contribute in some way to the social and economic process. Activities are listed for 289 local and national organizations in the following areas: (1) education; (2) health care; (3) home and neighborhood; (4) economics and trade; (5) civil and political rights; (6) rural, agricultural, and environmental concerns; (7) professional groups; and (8) communication and the arts. Also included for each organization are the date of founding, language(s), address and telephone number, and names of the principal officers. Resource organizations included are not always women's groups, but they can be helpful to women's organizations in various ways. Similar information is provided for regional and worldwide women's organizations, as well as a brief directory of international resource groups. (AWP)
