Home Grown Solutions Needed

Dear Listeners,

I have enjoyed listening to the stories of women across Africa; about what matters most to them and I have been enlightened, humbled and moved beyond measure.
Reading through these stories, i wonder whether there are pulse initiated action to find solutions for these problems at home. If none exists, then i think it would help greatly to empower women to find solutions to these problems themselves. I believe that a lasting solution can be found this way.
Further, I have observed that the majority of women posting stories here are from Africa and I wonder whether these problems are unique to African women or whether African women open up more easily.
All in all I am honored to be able to share these experiences with fellow listeners and the writers.

Thank you.

Solutions needed


I believe that African women are ready to speak up now, this is one of the reasons why we have so many of them writing their stories.
I guess they have finally pass the stage of being silent, too much is too much. Let's not forget that a virtual platform makes it easier too.

Reading all these stories, forced me to revisit my own life. I am very humble.

What can they do when facing a solid, strong and alienating system? How can we help them to organize and become strong enough to start fighting for their rights?
I don't have the answer.
