Bravo woman!

it amazes me to see the works of women.

I have never come across a group of women who have failed.
In my country we have a wide range of religious organisation and in these churches, though most of the women are not lead leaders yet in their own groups, they have achieved so much. Like the dorcas mothers in their blue uniforms,their hands dedicated to make a difference in society..women of influence,they fight until they achieve their goals...

But as I analyse the whole scenior, I note that all this power, the zeal starts from their own homes. It is a woman who makes up a home, in the absence of a woman a family fails apart, just as I read in Gail Straub's book . it is a woman who holds a home together, a community and empowers. And it is a woman like Jesine who had made a gobal community like worldpulse where women success and development and voices have been heard.

whereever a woman is there is sign of development and success

Bravo woman!

Hey Jade

I did enjoy Gail book so much.
Its a wonderful book for any woman I think so.

I enjoyed most of the parts especially when she was young and her mother did what she could to just ensure the children and family were living to everyone expectation.. I think her mom was more like mine and mothers always want the best for their children and always feel they are not doing enough. She was indeed a great woman though she never lived her dream to the full capacity but lived it probably in her daughter Gail..

I can go on and on but its such a wonderful book...

enjoy the day and Brova!

That is the exact phrase in India, put the microfinance money in th hand of a woman, it would not fail!

it is a woman who plans a home and knows the appetite of her husband and children, so why not put that money in her hands..

have a lovely day

Yes my friend and sister- it is true, women are powerful, creative, innovative, bright beings. Whether from necessity or simply from sheer luck, women seem to over come so much adversity all over the world.

This is a beautiful shout out to sisterhood. So many of us are so thankful for Jensine, Jade, and everyone else at WorldPulse. I know having a voice in this site has made a difference in my life and many others!

Beautiful post Dando!

In love,
