FMUS subscribers receive two email messages from our Founder Françoise Girard per month. In the Newsletter, Girard writes - often in personal terms - about issues of concern facing each of us as we seek to advance women’s and girls’ rights around the world. In the Digest, Françoise  comments on readings, films and recordings that she feels can inspire current and emerging feminist activists. We invite you to consult past Newsletters and Digests here.
