Over the past week we’ve witnessed media buzzing about the enormous potential of women and girls.
Between last week’s release of The New York Times Magazine’s special issue dedicated to women, and next week’s release of Nicholas Kristof’s and Sheryl WuDunn’s book Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide, the world is increasingly waking up to the fact that empowering women is the solution to today’s most pressing problems.
This growing awareness could not come at a better time. World Pulse is proud to be recommended in Half the Sky as an important media source for the women’s empowerment movement.
At World Pulse we know that one of the greatest engines for women’s empowerment goes beyond traditional humanitarian work. We believe that women speaking for themselves is key to setting in motion a true system-changing revolution. Thanks to the power of new media and communications technology, we are at a historic moment where women worldwideeven those from rural villagescan at last speak in their own words to the global public, connect to each other, and drive their own development and the development of their nations.
Women’s voices are still the most unheard in the world. Governments, businesses, NGOs, and even journalists continue to speak for women and define their causes.
That’s why World Pulse is committed to providing a media platform where women can speak for themselves, connect, and have a voice in the issues affecting their lives. Whether through our print magazine, our web 2.0 global women’s newswire, or our grassroots women’s citizen journalism networkyou can be a part of the “pulse” of women’s voices rising everywhere.
“The pulse has come alive in me and I can feel it beating strongly. I want to be a part of this movement, this global movement called World Pulse that has already begun to change my life, and make it change the lives of many others for the better. Together we will improve the future of women all over the world.”
