What excites me most about the web 2.0 is that:-
• It provides the historical opportunity to promote our voices, strengthen our collaboration and accelerate the exchange of working models for women’s empowerment and global challenges.
• The web 2.0 provides a platform for discussion on various issues affecting women globally. Issues like reproductive health, gender based violence, women participation in politics etc
• Web 2.0 communication provides the platform for interactions amongst people from different walks of life, social networking and connect.
• Web 2.0 and social networking sites are the best places to share stories, efficient knowledge worker collaboration, employee satisfaction and clients’ success.
• Web 2.0 also allows population to correspond and spread ideas with each other rather than receiving the information from a single source. Information run freely, easily and people can put across their thoughts without fear of authoritarialism. It keeps everyone informed and abreast with the latest developments. This means instead of reading information from one source, you can receive from various sources, allowing better and understanding decision.

For the global women’s empowerment movement the web 2.0 can bring the following solutions:-
• The Web 2.0 will educate women on different issues. People can ask questions and get a variety of answers and opinions on issues confusing them. Web 2.0 platform provides enough material for any kind of research.
• The Web 2.0 will help build global women’s empowerment movement to communicate with people around the globe to strengthen and foster advocacy.
• The Web 2.0 brings together different groups, movements, professionals, NGOS etc to connect and proffer ideas, solutions and visions on ways to improve global women’s empowerment movement.
• Create a global awareness on a prevailing issue in a particular area with people posting blogs constantly on the web. Through this awareness attention can be drawn to the issue.

These tools are empowering to me in the following ways:-
• First, through the web 2.0 I have become part of an interesting people to contribute our amplified voices to build global women’s empowerment movement.
• Iam optimistic that through the use of web 2.0,I will form networks to work together with to bring social change in my community on issues affecting women.
• I will also get to make new through this training and learn how to write journals and create awareness on women issues.

What a clear answer! It was very easy to read and follow your points, thank you for that!
You seem to have lots of experience with Web 2.0,

you mentioned that you want to raise awareness in your community about the issues that are affecting women, I am interested to know what issues specifically you are referring to. Would it be possible to write about them a bit? maybe in another post?

all the best

A Strong, Clear Voice

Hello Mukoche!

Your writing is clear, organized and powerful.

I was touched to hear how much you value the Web opportunities for freedom , where information can " run freely". You understand so well that this access is as much about your own learning as it is for the community that is being built. And yes, " woman of destiny", this is historical!

I would ask one more thing of share more of your own personal stories of what life has been like without this access and how it has inspired you to reach out.

All good things for you!
Thank you for the chance to read your words.

Week 1 Assigment

Hi Mukoche,

I enjoyed reading your journal entry. I especially liked what you had to say about people being empowered by web 2.0 because they would have the ability to make choices about what information they take in and believe instead of having to rely on a single source for information. I would love to hear more about your personal experiences with this and how you think it will help women in your community.

I also really appreciated your formatting, which made your post easy to follow.

Thank you,
