Introducing myself and my journal

About Me:
I am an elementary teacher in Kingston Ontario, Canada. I have lived in this area most of my life. I recently attended a women's conference organized by the Elementary Teacher's Union in Toronto and was inspired by the many wonderful women activists that spoke at the conference, to join a women's activist group.
I am married to a wonderful man. We have no children (personal choice). We are closely connected to our extended families.
Even in Canada women still have to fight to gain rights and to keep the rights we have attained, and I want to help other women in other countries move forward to attain equal rights and protection in their countries.

My Passions:

My Challenges:
Knowing how and where to help

My Vision for the Future:
Global Equal Rights for all people

My Areas of Expertise:

Hello Fatima, Thank you for your welcome! I just got cleared to post messages. Today I am on my way into town to view the second half of the documentary "Half the Sky". Have you heard of it or the book? The documentary follows women's activists from around the world working to help women gain equality and protection against a variety of problems such as prostitution, lack of available education, rape, etc.
The first half was very inspiring and disturbing!
