2010 VOF Week 1

What most excites me more about Web 2.0 are the exciting stories and experiences of women, the connection nature despite the race, the testimonies of many lives that have been transformed for the better as well as the global movement of women.

The solution that Web 2.0 to the global women empowerment are exorbitant because i believe it has created the following
Hope to the hopeless,
Elimination of fear
Fighting stigma
Binding women together
Reflection of respect for example at all steps that one goes through. That is to say i have read some articles like for Deepti whose focus was on who her Hero was and i learnt that teachers are so important to our lives and i believe Web 2.0 is doing the same and i value as my teacher.

I have started to experience some empowerment of Web 2.0 in the areas of humanitarian and culture. for example i am already connected with friends from different cultures. also the testimonies are strong. for example the biography or experience of dg. Vegas who shared with us the critical topics on Child pornography and prostitution, motherhood and natural drugfree child birth. i can not take this for granted because maby women have become victims of such. Also being the mothers for the world, such issues have left women in tiers and tramourtised. so if such experts can share with us their experiences, i believe the world will be healed and the women will eventually smile alover for the what Web 2.0 is doing.

Thank

Dear Grace,

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on Web 2.0. I found that your examples (talking about dg. Vegas and Deepti) really made your writing personal and added greatly to your assignment!

I would love to know more about what you think Web 2.0 can do for the women in your country!

Kind regards,

Rachael

empowerment through talk

Hi Grace

I'm one of the listeners evaluating your week 1 assignment. Today I am so frustrated at work and when I read your response to the assignment my spirits began to lift.

I agree with you that web 2.0 teaches a culture of knowledge and experience sharing, without the graphic experiences of deepti and dg vegas those of us who are not personally effected by such dramatic humanitarian issues begin to understand the need and the importance to talk to share to learn to understand to provide assistance.

I like how you set out each question in a different paragraph. and I like that you gave the second answer/paragraph a poetic feel to by listing positive solutions which web 2.0 has given.

I agree also with your third answer. web 2.0 empowers you to talk without censorship about issues which you feel are important. that sense of empowerment makes confident female leaders in the world.
