Summary of statement by the Women's Caucus at the International Conference for Financing for Development (FfD)

KULU Women and Development
An Equitable World is possible and necessary women at the FfD declare.
The Women's Caucus, comprising representatives from organizations in more than 50 countries worldwide, is alarmed that this meeting on Financing for Development is being used as a venue for subverting development and advancing the militarist goals of the U.S. government's "war on terrorism".

As governments and multilateral financial and trade organizations collude here in Monterrey, women are being hemmed in by two forces of fundamentalism: the fundamentalism of the market and religious fundamentalism that have brought the world to a dangerous juncture. The Monterrey Consensus assumes that the global economic and financial system is functioning well and working for all.
