Our History

What started with one VOICE, has grown to many.

As a young journalist in Burma and the Amazon, Jensine Larsen discovered that some of the world’s most important stories are rarely mentioned in the mass media. So she began a quest to create a media source that would bring the vital, yet untapped, voices and solutions of women and youth to the world stage.

In 2003, at age 28, Larsen founded World Pulse as a nonprofit media organization in order to launch a bold and beautiful new magazine, one that would cut to the heart of global problems through the eyes of women and highlight solutions already underway.

The premiere issue of World Pulse Magazine debuted in 2004. Thousands of individuals and grassroots organizations took notice. Newsstand sales were double the average for new publications and the magazine was nominated for "Best International Coverage" and "Best New Title" of 2004 and 2005 by the Independent Press Awards.

In the wake of this overwhelming response, we began working with teams of professional advisors, a deeply dedicated staff, international journalists, a photojournalist networks, an Editorial Guide Council, and thousands of founding subscribers and donors from around the world.

In 2007, our eyes turned to the future of communications technology in the developing world, and we began to pioneer the development of our online community.

Our online community is an interactive newswire enabling women worldwide—even those just coming online using Internet cafes and cell phones—to speak for themselves to the world and solve global problems.

Today, World Pulse has grown into an international network connecting women and men across borders and building a rising pulse of women’s empowerment across the globe.
