“Giving global women a voice on the World Pulse board of directors” World Pulse Members! Let us be Ambassadors for women of the world.
Before starting writing my essay I tried to find out how many members World Pulse has got. You may be sure the number is big. But for me just a “physical” number is not enough. The ideology is more important. And, Yes! This is a space which has an ideology. This is a community which makes together women from the South to the North, from the West to the East, from different countries. This is a community which makes together women with different cultures, traditions, nations. And the ideology is to raise a woman voice, to empower a woman.
The work I do in my country – Armenia, in my organization – Armenian Young Women’s Association (AYWA), is similar to the work done by World Pulse. Being a leading organization in women field AYWA has the same task – to empower young women, to increase their role in our society. AYWA envisions a sound community without marginalized people, which is gender just, culturally plural, socially and economically equitable and politically participatory, peaceful, democratic, secular, and ecologically sane. “Education. Inspiration. Empowerment” – this is the slogan for Armenian Young Women’s Association.
Trying to be practical I’ll introduce what I would intend to do while being a World Pulse community Board Member. I’ll be able to encourage more women to share with others with their good practice, experience, thoughts. Women everywhere need more encouragement. And, I see World Pulse task not only as a discussions organizer but also as an initiator and an implementer of different kinds of online competitions and events. This can be counted as another stage for World Pulse.
This is a very typical place to bring Gandhi’s words: “Be the change you want to see in the world”. I want to see changes in the world. And I will be the change.
