Emotional Rain

sampc4da8f974c63a72d.jpg

The emotional turmoil of being selected to represent the voices of millions of women and making their presence visible to the world leaders and the media is over, and now we need to begin the real work.

My sisters in the Pulsewire will agree with me that we need to get together and start building a vision to be presented in behalf of all of us. I know that I speak for all the three representatives and the six finalists, when I say that we need to open our ears big and make room in our hearts to be able to do two things:

1.- We need to reach out in our own countries and continents, so that we hear the voices of more women. For this, we will need the help of each one of you, to be able to grasp the ideas and feelings of women in other countries of the continents that we represent. How to do this, needs a brainstorming from all of you, as to begin this new phase. All ideas are welcome.

2.- We need to gather the suggestions and thoughts from all women in the Pulsewire community. We have a pretty good idea of the issues that women are touching right now in our place, but we need to start exploring more and conveying more into an angle that each of the three Voices of the Future can touch, that will be meaningful to the whole community. For this we need the help of the six finalists, as well as everyone interested on helping.

We know that it is hard to give time and effort to this, I feel like it will be something like an emotional rain from where we need to begin painting a beautiful picture that will be taken into the tour next year. But I assure you, it is all worth it.

Please take into account that Voices of the Future will have a second version this year. It is our experience that will mold the results of next year’s beehive. Let us come together and begin the brainstorming about these issues.

Remember that for every window you help us open in each of your countries and workplaces, we may be able to open new doors for more women around the world. Come with us. Share your vision. Help us help.

Thank you darling

Tell me, is there a way that you can collect a bunch of, let's say, the ten most important issues going on in your country against or in favor of women?

Hugs,

Jackie

Great!

Dear Efe,

Judging from everyone's busy schedule for christmas and new year, let us begin the work on January. In the meantime, have a blessed xmas and the best new year ever.

Love,

Jackie

PS I think it will be best to decide about deadlines altogether, when we meet again after the holydays.

You are the sweetest sis I have around here, and your words make me blush a little... but dude... I ain't so good! hehe. It is also one of my biggest dreams to meet you in the US.

Now, Tina, will you please make up a list of the ten issues women around you feel are the top in the list?

Hugs honey,

Thanks Nusrat

I really appreciate your support girl!

Please tell me, do you think you could make a list (make it a democratic list by including everyone you know in the opinion) of the 10 most important issues for women in your part of the world? Maybe you could point out why also.

Thanks honey. Hugs,

Jackie

Hi Jackie! I'm always excited

Hi Jackie! I'm always excited to hear your voice as well as my daughter. We are together through thick and thin.
Keep smiling and believing!

love,
Malaya

Hi Malaya

I am also soooo excited that we now are able to speak and get together online! I love chatting with your daughter, she is like a burst of honey in my heart!

Sweetheart, will you be able to collect data on the ten most important issues in your country and your continent? We need to decide which parts of the world you will cover, which ones will be covered by Sunita and which ones will be covered by me.

In my case, of course it will be the Americas and I would love to do New Zealand and Australia also, as they have such a big indigenous population, with whom I have already had a small approach. I love to get closer to them.

Hugs honey!

Lets work together

Hello Jackie,

You are the one who try very hard to bring us together. Thank you so much for your effort. Yes I agree with you. Lets work together to keep our promise. There is a famous quote from Mahatama Ghandhi We have to bring the change we want to see . Hence, lets work together to bring the change. Lets open every possible doors and windows for our sisters who ignored from their parents, brothers and husbands.

Among six, I am ready and excitied to do so.

With Love and Regards
Sunita Basnet

Thanks Sunita!

You are so nice to me! I have indeed tried, and your support makes it easier for us all the way.

As I was saying in the comment to Malaya, we need to decide which zones of the world, or which continents, let's say, will be our target (for each of the three of us), hence we can pair ourselves with Gertrude, Nusrat and Dando to work in these continents. I would like to work with Dando, I will ask her if she is interested on working on the Americas and Australia and New Zealand.

Can you search for the 10 most important issues in your country and continent for women?

Hugs,

Jackie

We move on

You and others in pulse wire have done great. so we move on and on and on...... We can have some weekly blog or something where we say what as ears and eyes we have heard, read and seen in our country, in just a few sentences... or we can arrange people according to regions and countries where this happens?

I am in Xmas mood and writing this in a hurry but hope am getting the concept,. I am sure once I am through with the festivities I can give a more concrete suggestion on the 'how'

Merry Xmas to you!
Cheers
