Web 2.0

Web 2.0 itself is an exciting project which can be accessed from anywhere in the world to stay connected to the likeminded community. Where you can share, discuss & raise your voice for free or economically to act as a change agent locally & globally. This platform actually motivates you to start writing and sharing what you want to change with the support of the community which boosts your morale rather than discouraging & thus it becomes the strength for you to bring a positive social change.
This is empowering women through writing that go online write what you need to change and forward that massage to the other concerned community who are facing the same issues and you can find some solutions to your problems through networking with them or you can suggest them the solution for the problem they are facing and how you overcome that problem in your community. This empowers us in a way that we are lessening our dependency on government and utilizing our time and abilities to generate more solutions rather than wasting it on waiting for government to respond. And the second important solution is that this is uniting women to take action for themselves rather than the opposite gender taking decisions for them.
This tool is actually motivated me to start writing as I always thought that I cannot write good stuff like journalists but here I am writing my opinions and sharing it with others which can contribute a bit if not a lot. Now I am able to learn about the issues faced by women in various diverse cultures and communities. This empowers me to speak my mind about how I feel about the issues and how can I find solutions for them. And this sharing actually gives me satisfaction that I am not alone fighting out here which recharge me towards bringing social change.

Maria, I think you have identified two very important points about the power of web 2.0; proactively generating solutions and empowering women to take action for themselves instead of letting others decide for them. Look forward to hearing more from you. - Fran
