A Book To Create Awarness


Inspiration always takes me for assault. These days after finishing world pulse VOF assigments, I've been focusing in writing. Also, I've been thinking of your feedback about my last assignment "The world from the sight of a butterfly". It seems so many women have stories about transformation, and going over their suffering to make something better for them and others. So,Yesterday in the bus I was matching two things together and I had an idea

What if I collect stories about women who became butterflies and put all together in a book?

would be nice to put together the personal stories of women in Argentina mixed with stories of woman from other countries in the world, In the last meeting I heard lots of stories about violence and how women went over this. They deserve to be read for others, to show violence, abuse, discrimination, but also that hope, empowerment, will to survive, are everywhere and each one could be a social change actor and show the power of connecting. If women can read each other, they will gain inspiration to think about their own situation from a new perspective, and spread awarness about gender violence as a social and human problem that even when global, has a solution, a solution that begins inside of every women.

I think I can fund raising and get some sponsors to publish it and maybe could be ready for the next 8th march. I would like this book could be free distribution or low cost so can be possible for everyone to have it.

Please, give me your feedback sister,I will be glad to hear what do you think about.

Go for it!


Hello there! I say go for it! What a wonderful idea to be able to share with women around the world, stories of hope and surival. Even though the issues of gender abuse and violence will be the main issues highlighted in your book, it is necessary in order to bring the issue to light. Your book would also be helpful to men, who mighr read it, when no one else is around. Think about all the goodness that could come from distributing the stories of women globally (in print). There is no need for an internet signal, and the stories can reach people in the most remote areas. Over the last few months, I have become fascinated with the culture of Argentina. I learned from reading. Let me know if you want my help in any way. I am finishing up on my current projects, and will have free time in afew weeks. Thank you! Good luck, and blessings!

Butterflies all around

I can already see it, Butterflies. Wouldnt it be something to have a reader that looks into the stories of not necessarily powerful and famous women for once, but ordinary women with some amazing stories and experiences to share on how they conquered. You could get submissions with key themes, so that people do not run away with themselves. Stories about women who have risen above the main challenges confronting today's women, and the limitations culturally, politically or economically imposed on them. I would read such a book. Go for it dearest

I am talking about ordinary women. We know already a lot of famous women, but what about those no famous but with something to say? they are my target.

One's life has value so long as one attributes value to the life of others, by means of love, friendship, indignation and compassion

I am thinking of how my illiterate women can benefit from such rich documentation. Can a video documentary series be prepared for this category.
