Introducing myself and my journal

This is Saren, from Cambodia, now studying in Asian University for Women in Bangladesh. My major is Asian Studies and I minor in Gender studies.

Since I was little, I've seen domestic violence happening all around me. I see husbands pull their wives' hairs and knock her down to the ground or throw her to the wall. I see him hitting her head with his boots. I see him kicking her over and over again. I see the women crying, bleeding, and struggling to fight back, but never winning. Those violent husbands were never punished. I then swear to myself that I would do something to stop this no matter how hard it is.

Here I am, in this amazing community, advocating mainly this domestic issue in my country, Cambodia.

I hope to do more than just writing in the future. I hope to work with the UN focusing on solving women's issues and then finally I hope to have my own NGO where I could help those unfortunate women receive justice. I also hope to start up a center where boys and men will be taught and told that violence against women is wrong and that they need to stop doing it.

Hello from World Pulse,

Hello from World Pulse, Saren.

You have reached out to World Pulse, and we are grateful for your presence.

I act as a volunteer World Pulse welcomer for new WP members and listener for other journal entries. This is some of the most exciting and rewarding work I've ever done. Through this effort, I have become a world volunteer.

I am wondering whether you have found any World Pulse efforts that really stir you to action. Our searchable site has so many examples of females empowering each other through education and encouragement, that there is certain to have inspiration for all.

We'd love to hear from you again.
