New Network for Women

The International Anglican Women's Network is the newest venture of the Anglican Consultative Council.

``This is not another organisation within the Anglican Church,'' said coordinator Elizabeth Barnes, wife of the Bishop of Johannesburg. ``Vital work is already being done and this network will act as a database for that work,'' she says. It will also serve as a vehicle for women's voices and core concerns to the ACC. ``It's a way to be heard more directly,'' Mrs Barnes says.

The self-funding network's initial focus is on literacy programs, education and empowerment of women and health concerns. Mrs Barnes especially wants to reach all women in the Communion to make IAWN a truly grassroots piece of the ACC.
