World Pulse: Where Women Speak Aloud

***Dedicated to World Pulse and all the beautiful women associated with it.***

In the immeasurably huge
world of the www,
there’s a tiny, yet incredible
place that a woman can call
her own; where
she feels the pulse of other
women; it’s a place
that gives her that rare ‘5th space’;
where she can speak out
of the ugly and the uglier without
being hushed. She also can
share her dream with other women
of an equal universe.

Yes, it’s World Pulse.

@ World Pulse, my dear,
amazing stories you hear

from women. Some are studying
for a degree while others
are busy attending
a special school called ‘life.’

A mother, a sister, a wife,
a lover and a friend -
they play many roles, and
with what ease! They also are
combatants in a special war
against bias and violation
of rights. Here they bring on

tales of loss, pain and denial,
challenges and trial
and of toughness, of guts.
Emotions flood my heart
as I read on.

Like champions,
they can shake n’ motivate.

Salute, World Pulse Women Brigade!

Women for women

I imagine a women brigade against gender biases with men as allies

Sure

Yes James, I agree with you. Whoever stands out against injustice, is a warrior for justice - whatever the sexual orientation might the person have.

Women of the Earth

The most amazing is that all women around the world have the same problems and the same reasons for happiness :) And to me is so cool to know the opinion from the other part of the world, from totally different view, from those who has experience or the opposite - full of hopes and expectations from this life. It gives hopes, it gives support! I'm with you, girls ;)

Stella Paul's picture

Strengthening!

Those are magic words 'I am with you'! This small sentence says all that one wants:support, strength, a stretched hand!

Women the hope

You educate a woman, you educate the nation. Educated mothers bring up children better than educated men. If you do not agree, give us your view.

James

Stella Paul's picture

Absolutely!

I just wrote that somewhere: educating a woman gets more dividends than one can expect. She receives formal education, but when she passes it on, she does value addition in form of wisdom, courage and inspiration.

My pleasure!

Dear Jensine

Hehehe, we women are never shy of singing praise, when the candidate truly deserves it, are we? You must be a very proud mother, watching this brainchild of yours growing from a sapling into a big tree that can provide shadow to hundreds of travelers.Personally, I needed something special to pull me out of a writers' block and I found it here. I owe you a lot of smiles :)
All the best, always
