Inspiring Women – Inspiring Actions

It’s been great participating in this year’s Voice of our Future (VOF) process. I have found it both refreshing and inspiring. Most importantly, I have been touched by the wonderful women I have met, read about and interacted with online. I would like to share a few things I learnt by participating in the VOF 2011:
1. There is an audience waiting to hear your stories and they want to connect with you.
2. You can rise above any restrictions or obstacles that socialize you to be silent, invincible and timid. It is my voice and I shall reclaim it back.
3. Write, write and write some more – in your journal and in comments about others work.
4. Use Tags. I now tag the files on my laptop - It definitely helps when searching for items on certain themes.

We are citizens of the world and we have a responsibility to speak up against injustice and unfairness in our world. Our actions should channel positive energy to resolving problems that limit women’s potentials. We should also promote good practices, tell success stories and celebrate women and men, who have made social impact in their communities. PulseWire – The World Pulse, gives us as women a platform to share, refresh and inspire. Let us continue to write and plan our actions whether on PulseWire or elsewhere. I wish you my fellow VOF correspondents an inspiring journey of self-discovery and mutual sisterhood. It may feel like the end but it is just the beginning.

In solidarity and sisterhood,
Osai

The wall of injustice

Hi Osai,
I am feeling a bit defeated tonight due to the nature of the corruption here in BC. Crown counsel makes decisions to lay charges and in one case the person is guilty of 10 counts under the criminal code. when they refuse to pursue it that is a slap in the face to the victim and the cost is so much in many ways. sop far in 3 case no charges laid . It is tiresome and I dont know what to do the one case cost me over 18,000 and the other 30,000 and now I am broke and the offenders walk free and rich . I need a miracle at this point

Inspiring action indeed!

I really enjoyed your post, especially for it's emphasis on action. Especially compared to other social networking sites, World Pulse doesn't make us want to limit our action to just posting articles or liking pictures... World Pulse inspires us to take action.

You made mention of tagging files on your laptop. I would love to hear more about how you do it. In order for me to write, I know I have to become more organized. In fact, I've been exploring various computer tools to help me do just this. On that note, I would like to let you know about the Microsoft application tool Groove... it can be found on any Microsoft Office tools 2007 and newer. Even if you don't use it for intranet or internet purposes, it's pretty cool tool to organize yourself. Also, Microsoft OneNotebook is cool for organizing one's thoughts.

Anyway, especially as many of us are very busy with work and our activism, it's not so easy to find time to write. But if we organize ourselves and manage our times better, we can allocate more time to writing. :)

Hello Rahel

I planned to get back to you earlier but it didn't work just like I would have liked. I use Microsoft Word 2010 and I tag files I save by including 'tags' in the tag section of the 'Save As' dialogue box. If it is a file that I previously saved, I just select it in the file it was saved and include tags under the 'Add a tag' section.

I don't have Groove. Maybe because I use a windows 2010 instead of 2007. I am going to play around with oneNotebook and see how it can help me organise myself better.

Thanks,
Osai
