Announcing our 2014 Campaign - WWW: Women Weave the Web!

We are excited to announce the launch of our WWW: Women Weave the Web Campaign! Join World Pulse in supporting women who are using the Internet to transform the world. From the streets of Nairobi to the plazas of Buenos Aires, women are logging on and sparking change. Now is the time to break down the digital divide. Participate in our campaign to make sure that every woman can access the tools that will empower her!

Our newly launched campaign is poised to crowdsource the wisdom of grassroots women leaders like you on issues related to digital inclusion and empowerment. With the launch of the campaign, we're kicking off the Digital Access phase to find out about challenges you have accessing the Internet and the solutions you and your community are developing. In a few months, we'll turn our focus to Digital Literacy and then to Digital Empowerment, to gather your ideas on the tools you need to fully espouse the web, as well as how the Internet empowers you to create real and powerful change on the ground. World Pulse will analyze the submitted testimonies, and, in conjunction with our partners, present your ideas and recommendations to important international forums, policy leaders, media outlets, and technology companies. Together, we can make sure our voices are heard in the halls of power, calling for the digital inclusion and empowerment of all women around the world!

Want to write a story? Take a picture? Connect with other women? There many ways to get involved with the campaign, from writing a journal entry on digital access to uploading a photo of your local library, or mapping internet cafes that are safe for women. Take a look at our How to Participate page to learn about all the ways that you can get your voice heard on this important issue!

This year, we have joined forces with several partners to bring some incredible opportunities and prizes to campaign participants! These opportunities include the $20,000 Lynn Syms prize, to be awarded to an outstanding grassroots woman and visionary voice using digital tools to effect change and advance her community work.

Campaign participants will also be able to apply to become a part of the Beyond Access Community, an initiative aimed at supporting local libraries in implementing community development programs. To be eligible for all the prizes, you first need to submit a journal entry to the campaign, so submit your story now!

empowering through the tech

This topic and campaign has increased and instigated many of us to share with all stories which are true and have really changed lives. Internet has been a stepping stone in the way of empowerment of women and initiating this campaign is a wonderful work.
Best wishes,
Soumya

Unique Opportunity

This a unique opportunity to air our voices on the hardship facing in having access to internet. How wonderful it would have been if an average woman or girl could have access to internet to share their story, to be in the right network to fulfil their vision and be empowered . This is going to be a wonderful campaign and I can't wait to be part of it. WorldPulse, kudos to you!!

Thank you WP

Thank you WP. The Campaign is so important and timely. Sometimes I sit back to imagine what the world should have been for us today without internet. No matter the frustrations that come with it sometimes, we are exposed to a world of opportunities and easier communications. I am ready to share in all ramifications, my experience of use of internet. It is awesome having and communicating the whole world on my screen, just inside my room.

Bravo World Pulse!
