Help WHRC complain to the UN
Please support WHRC by sending a complaint to the UN to let them know how gender ideology is undermining women's rights. Anyone, including individuals, can complain to the United Nations, using this link.
Your email can include lots of detail, or just a small amount. The link explains how to do it. Several WHRC women are doing this, so if you want some advice send an email to [email protected] and we can try to answer your questions. So far we know of four complaints going in about the damage done by gender ideology. Please help to increase that number so the United Nations hears our concerns.
