Women's Effect

Being in a world where women can amicably speak out their minds and find solutions to problems that affect them the most, is one of my dreams come true. Since the creation of the world women have been the bed rock of societies, but have been ignored and rather consider as baby makers and house keepers. On the opposite, women have and are still contributing immensely to the well being of our world. For instance, their role in World War 2, which finally proved that they too can do it, has since been looked down upon. When men were at the battle front destroying mankind, they were left with the homes and big factories to cater to. Indoubtably, the success of women is uncountable. Like in the words of Halima Mohamed Abdel rahman “It is a gift of the century for women to deliver their messages freely and be heard”

Now with the invention of web 2.0, the sky is the limit for an everyday woman. With this electronic global community, there’s going to be no one to censor what a lady feels or thinks. She’s going to speak out without fear of been charged with criminal libel, which actually puts her at risk with loosing her home and family. It has always been the desperation of women to speak their minds, but religions and societies have confined us to specific roles. Interestingly with these intimidations, the effects of women on society are tremendous. Now imagine a world where a lady with dreams, visions and inspirations and have the best audience and family like World Pulse to promote her to the fullest, the world is yet to get the best from this generation.

Coming from a country where the issue of women’s equality is high since there is a female president, and finding me in a mist of woman who are prepared to help me get the best the prospects are endless. Already I have started benefiting for friends who have a vast knowledge on broadcasting and reporting. Secondly, the fact that I am able to discuss and get advices and learning about so many things happen around the world by ordinary woman, it helps me a lot a gives me a courage to champion the cause.

Hi Tennen

I always feel indebted to women who are able to raise their voice without fear. Might be because I am not like that. I am weak and would not want to be prosecuted for speaking the truth. But there is always a way the truth will find its way to make itself be heard loud and clear, and it is women like you who help in the cause of virtue.

Thanks for this encourgement.

Love,

Jackie

It is amazing to know that

It is amazing to know that the sky is the limit. What I feel, I can share with anyone and everyone. I no longer am silenced. And I am so glad you expressed this so beautifully in your journal.
