Introducing myself and my journal: connecting from Virginia

About Me:
I am almost 60 yrs. old, living on the East Coast of the United States. My children are grown and live in other cities. I learned about the work of World Pulse from the Women & Power Conference at Omega and I'm excited to connect with women all over the world. I majored in Women's Studies in College and I care deeply about women's issues because women's issues are the breath of life. I visited this site tonight because I knew I'd hear from the women and families in the Phillipines, devastated by the typhoon.

Warmest Welcome!

Hi Mary,

We are so glad to have you here in our community! And it's always exciting to hear about how members found their way to PulseWire. I heard that the Omega conference was quite inspiring - it's so great to see people who attended and spoke at the conference here in the community.

The best way to communicate on PulseWire and share your voice is to write in your journal, read the journals of fellow members and offer comments, or join a group and share in the dialogue by contributing to the group journal. You might also consider posting to Resource Exchange, a global bulletin board designed to offer access to needed resources as well as the ability to provide resources to those in need and explore and contribute to Sharing Solutions, a library of working models and blueprints.

Looking forward to hearing more of your voice here on PulseWire!

Warm Regards,

A friend forwarded this link to me. I read the blog comments and they were so negative and worn out! So, I share my reply post with you.

I embrace the Dali Lama’s proclamation that he is a feminist. Of course he is. Feminism is defined by embracing connection, respect for differences that stretch us, teach us, and enrich us. Feminism is all about systems, relatedness, interdependence, thriving.
Every moniker or label manifests over a broad spectrum. Each time, we choose where we take our place on the spectrum. Otherwise, the arguments go on and on, staying stuck.
