Join Us in Honoring Our Heroes on International Women's Day

Photograph © Andrea Leoncavallo

Every day, women worldwide are performing amazing acts of bravery that often go unrecognized. They take care of their families. They stand up for their rights. They seek education. They run for government office. They raise their voices when they have been told to be silent. Through their actions, they are changing the world for all of us.

In honor of the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day, World Pulse invites our community to celebrate the women heroes who have inspired you.

Tribute to the Daughters of Africa

To the many women who have left an imprint in my life: My mother who gave me life, the blessing of her protection, and spirit wisdom. My Grandmother's grace and cultural education. Many aunties who imparted a sense of style, character, and embodiment of feminine strength. My cousins who were like sisters and held my hand as we experienced life together. Most importantly to my many circle of sisters who wholeheartedly give of themselves everyday... I am the sum of many life-giving energies arising from a strong, dynamic, passionate sisterhood. It is wonderful to celebrate today with other women across the globe! May we garner courage and confidence to tackle all that yet remains to be addressed with respect to women's rights.

Today, I will be covering the CARE 2011 National Conference which opens with a tribute to the 100th anniversary! More pieces to come on how this day was commemorated in Washington, DC!

Till then, enjoy my video presentation: Tribute to the Daughters of Africa

We honored our President

The Network of Rural Women Producers Trinidad and Tobago paid tribute to our President/ National Coordinator for the hard work and commitment to the advancement of rural women over the years.

We held an event which focused on the characters depicted on this time of the celebration of our carnival as well as International Women's Day, the characters displayed and use the spoken words to send messages which focused on the contributions made by women in politics, NGO, Communities, and the difficulties of those who felt the effects of climate change on agriculture, economic development, food shortage, rising prices for basic food items.
