NO ONE SPEAK FOR ME I SPEAK FOR MYSELF
“NO ONE SPEAK FOR ME I SPEAK FOR MYSELF”- This line entered into my heart after reading it in pulse-wire for the very first time! At my side of the world where women are still dependent, still supposed to be the household issues only, still limited to basic freedom and are still silent without raising their voice and if they do so they are taken as the characterless women. So I immediately applied for the volunteer post for the pulse wire at my first visit so that I can be the part of this amazing online community.
It’s not a coincidence to be here. The platform to learn and share representing the society was what I was always looking for! And what else could be the right platform than pulse wire-“where I learn much more than I share and where I get much more than I give”.
I am not sure of beginning of my journey towards working for social issues. It may have started when I saw people talking against having daughters or when I went through the toughest time during my first menstruation in the name of the culture. It may have started growing when I was the part of the cultural program through school for continuously 3 days and night without resting to collect the fund for the school building or the fight against my childhood friend’s marriage at her age of 15 can also be the reason for why I am here in pulse wire. It may have taken this direction when I started feeling so contented doing the community based work through red- cross, green club or rotaract.
I felt and believed that if I don’t raise my voice, my countless stories of pain and the glory of my womanhood will be unshared and declined inside my body and mind which can be the learning lesson and inspiration for many woman like me and now I’m right here in Voices of Our Future.
This amazing journey undoubtedly fit into my personal vision-where women are independent and have no fear raising the voice, they are not only the matter of household issues and have every right to take decision about their career or giving birth to the child and where my community accepts the positive change and gives the equal opportunity to all. The so called educated yet conservative society needs to be change through the youth like me, and because I am a woman I feel much stronger to do so.
If a woman can create a good family she can create the good society too. The one who are most responsible yet are most ignored needs to be empowered. If I can be the inspiration for many women why can’t I be inspired and empowered like many women who can create the better society through pulse wire?
