Emotional Rain

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.

Access to information

I think women need access to information, one of the rights enshrined in the UN Declaration of Human Rights. Information concerning them, their communities, health, families etc. It is by having this information that they can make a difference in their lives. They can be able to make informed decisions. They will have options and be able to choose what they feel is good for them.

Thanks Gertrude

I agree with you completely. We are having like a 'reunion' in the following link:

http://www.worldpulse.com/node/16101

Please take a minute to review all that is happening there.

In the meantime, do you think you could research for the 10 most important issues that are meaningful to women in your country and in your continent?

I think it is necessary that the six finalists make three pairs so that we can work together in focusing on what is most important and taking over the geographical parts of the world that we will touch.

Thanks for giving thought to this ideas and please respond in the link I gave you before, so that we will have it all concentrated there.

Hugs,

Jackie

Clarifications please...

Hi Jacky,
Its good to hear your voice again.
As I prepare answers to your questions, I need clarifications on the second point. You say "We have a pretty good idea of the issues that women are touching right now in our place." What are the issues? Iam not sure what they are. Perhaps I missed an earlier mail? There is no way I can give suggestions if I don't know what is on ground already. Please clarify.
Love,
Ayobami

Hi Ayobami

Sweetheart, you didn't miss anything. I was just referring to the normal Pulsewire issues that women are touching. But we need to get more specific and start the work towards the tour.

I appreciate your coming forward and am positive that your help will be most relevant. Please review (make it the most democratic possible) the 10 most important issues for women in your country and your continent. We will then discuss them and decide which ones we will touch in the tour.

Please go to:

Take a minute to review what is happening in this awesome online reunion, and make your comments there so that we keep up with all thoughts in that place also.

Thanks Honey. Love ya,

Jackie

Emotional Rain

This is wonderful Jackie. Thank you for reaching out to the team. We are currently brainstorming about this next phase, what it will look like and how best it will serve you all. We are reviewing all the comments from the survey, and gathering together your feedback and input so that we can offer a continuing education program that empowers you even more in broadcasting your voices out to the world.

I look forward to seeing the responses to your call to action and don't hesitate to let me know if there is anything I can help with. Best wishes,
Janice

I appreciate your coming forward to help us in these issues. It is awesome to have you by our side. As you will see, this is becoming something like a 'reunion' online, to define which issues we will be touching.

Please make your comments in the link above, so that we can keep the chatting open and focused there.

After we have some results, we will ask for some more specific help. Thank you!

Love you lots sweetheart!
