This is the life: 2013 VOF Week 1

Web 2.0
In the olden days of our grandmothers notjing like thi sexisted. We are now very blesed with boundless opportunities to put our points across. Web 2.0 for me means freedom of speech, it means having that loud voice to speak with reaching to the ends of the word with just my fingers. There shall be no limit to information. Every woman in the world within reach of an internet has now been enabled to speak theit hearts out, bring about change, start revolutions and be woman. There can now be no excuse for women to be silent about things happening around them. This is a platform to bring change, to shine our lights brighter than our mothers ever could dream. Web 2.0 gives me confidence that my voice can be heard, I will not be silent anymore. At last i acn also be a part of a revolution taking place in India, a protest b+eing held in Argentina, a speak out in Malawi while sitting in my living room in South Africa. I can now be the voice that brings change to the whole world, ME. This world will now be a better place because i have been given opportunity to SPEAK. Web 2.0 everyone can use, we do not need any licences or special permission to use it. It brings people from all walks of life together united in one voice. One can easily start a world debate, acquire funds for worthy causes, get help on issues affecting her community from world experts. No conversation is impossible with Web 2.0. A person in South Africa might receive their healing from a web search performed on internet. I am able to acquire skills via internet which are otherwise maybe not offered in my country. Knowledge is overwhelming on the internet. The days of writing letters, postcards is over everything is instant now. I can post a video on you tube and be able to get my point across even to those who cannot read for they only need to listen to my voice. Thank you so much for opening our eyes with this programme

exercise freedom of speech

Web 2.0 allows us to exercise our human right to expression of thought.
Nobody can stop us from doing and it is great to find other people with shared stories and experiences and that creates global movement.

I enjoyed reading your post

Speak our hearts out!

There is so much passion here! It is truly amazing that we can all be a part of so much, when all we need are a few fingers to type with. When everyone has a chance to speak, the world will be a better place. Keep speaking your heart out, and we will all learn something!

Inspired by your passion!

You are so right! Our grandmothers could never have dreamed of a world where women can communicate with each other about all facets of our lives, from all parts of the world. There is so much potential for collaboration and positive change. Nice writing!
