Dear Ms. Kate Lappin and Ms. Audrey Lee,
With reference to your letter dated 21 October 2011, I wish to thank the South East Asian Women’s Caucus on ASEAN for their submission and inputs to the ASEAN Human Rights Declaration (AHRD). I understand that the submission is the fruit of a series of consultations that include both regional and national consultations with women organizations, individual experts and feminists across South East Asia.
Thank you again for the Women’s Caucus contributions on this important issue.
Chair of AICHR
