Joan B. Dunlop "served as President of the International Women's Health Coalition from 1984 to 1998. Responsible for revitalizing the organization's mission, she extended its reach and visibility and shaped its influential role in global policy development for 14 years. In 1989, she was recognized by Barnard College as one of 100 Distinguished New York Women, and in 1995, she was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters by Hamilton College. Born and educated in England, Ms. Dunlop was introduced to global women's issues in the office of John D. Rockefeller 3rd, while advising him on population issues. She also held positions in the New York City budget office under Mayor John Lindsay, at the New York Public Library, and at several foundations, including the Ford Foundation, the Fund for the City of New York, and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, where she was a Distinguished Fellow from 1998 to 2001. In 2000, Ms. Dunlop founded "A Women's Lens on Global Issues," a non-profit initiative that organizes grassroots female activists to influence U.S. foreign policy. Ms. Dunlop continues to serve on the boards of the Open Society Institute and CARE, among other organizations." [1]

"Dunlop, who led the efforts to make women’s sexual and reproductive health rights a central tenet of the 1994 UN Conference on Population and Development and the Women's Conference in Beijing in 1995, is currently developing the new non-profit “A Women's Lens on Global Issues.” The organization works to identify and build constituencies of American women activists committed to international development.

"Prior to this position, Dunlop was President of the International Women's Health Coalition where she grew the three-person office to an agency with a staff of twenty-two with a budget of four million dollars, and a program reaching eight countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America.“ [2]
