Cyber women

Web 2.0 will finally give women the platform needed to have their voices heard by the world from corner to corner.In this way a woman can say whatever she wants without being intimidated by anyone,and get recognition for her personal views.This is a free society and everyone should be allowed to voice their own opinions without be forced into saying anything.

By this Web 2.0 women can form strong forums with other women around the world of the same calibre,and get to experience how other women live in their particular countries without even boarding a plane,but by just a single push of a button.

Women will be able to share their own personal stories with others and will be able to get positive feedback and solutions from women alike who’ve been in the same situation or who can help in oneway or the other.
You know at times it is very difficult to find people who exactly share the same view as you do,and at times trying to solve a problem on your own without some specific help can be quite difficult;so with the use of things like social networks via the internet and Web 2.0,women can start to build themselves without any prejudy from anyone and they can a new chapter of their lives.

Web 2.0 will bring women from across the world together under one umbrella to share the journey of womanhood,and without any stereotype spoiling it for them.

Women,this is an online womens club where you get to put anything on the table to be discussed and solved the woman way,brace yourself-you have reached your destination!

I’m glad to be a part of this,because I’ll be able to broaden my view on women issues with the help of so many other interesting women.It is now our time to shine!

Social media is now the new tool to combat pressing issues that solely affect women,by women for women!!!

Laurika, Hello! I agree

Laurika,

Hello!

I agree with you that WEB 2.0 allows women to communicate more rapidly and and makes distance a minor problem.

I also like this statement, "You know at times it is very difficult to find people who exactly share the same view as you do,and at times trying to solve a problem on your own without some specific help can be quite difficult;so with the use of things like social networks via the internet and Web 2.0,women can start to build themselves without any prejudy from anyone and they can a new chapter of their lives."

I would also add that Web 2.0 introduces us to women who have different view points that are not always the same as ours, thus allowing women to engage in dialogue about their respective communities, sociopolitical environments, strategies and goals.

Nice to meet you, Laurika!

Great post!

Hi Laurika,

Your post is very expressive and inspiring and you really shared how much you are excited to be part of web 2.0 and how it will help you and your female friends have a forum that is just for them. I agree that it is an amazing tool for women and girls to engage with each other in a safe, friendly and supportive environment. You have a natural gift for sharing your inspirations in a very energizing way. One thing I would love to hear more about is your personal experience and background and what motivated you to become part of WorldPulse and use Web 2.0. Adding a personal touch always makes the reader feel more like they are living the story there alongside you.

Best,
Jennifer

Power of the Web

Hi Laurika,

I enjoyed reading your reflections on the power of Web 2.0. It really is amazing to think how much information, and how much beauty and connection we can find through these new technologies. I love being a part of PulseWire, where I can go around the world and visit with my friends, all while sitting at my desk!

I love that women have this space to be free to speak their minds, hearts and souls... I hope that this space can help to create more spaces like it in our "real" lives.

Thanks for being here, I look forward to reading more of your work.
