World Plus's contribution in my life

Me and my story, it sounds the most interesting thing for me. Every one has dreams and ambitions in life. And every one makes struggle to reach at a better position. It’s very true that the women living in a patriarchal society have very few opportunities to have resources and support of their family and society. A society where every body thinks that women are not worthy of doing any thing, except of doing domestic work. A society where violence does not start from the streets but from their own homes. The life of fear and discouragement stops thousands of legends to die with grief and sorrow. My dreams were same as could be of any dreamer. I saw the dreams of development of my overall society. The society where I can contribute for the welfare of my people. And where my efforts could be appreciated. I always wanted to live a liberal life. The life of living in a male dominating society holds your breath. And you fell like a slave. In the starting days of my university I had the courage and joy of growing as a human being. but there too I faced the horrible faces of male gender to degrade me for their sexual desires. i saw cruel people who beat their sisters and insult their wives. I saw male gender who do not respect female as they should be. The pain of having no support really makes you feel lonely. My thinking about male gender very much changed with the help and support of my faithful and nice male friends. However I still feel lonely when I was not appreciated from my family members. A few months before with the helpful search of Goggle I found an amazing source. The source which connected me to thousands of women in the world. I found a place where stories, your personal experiences, ambitions, goals are appreciated. A place of liberty to express yourself, to learn from online provided material, to have opportunities to raise you voice as an important thing for this world. A place where you are encouraged for your life. And this place is World plus. I thank you World plus that you have give me the chance to share my story to the whole world. Here I have friends. I read the heart touching stories of different women. Which give me the courage to fight for the thing I am fighting? Thank you God for providing me such a wonderful source. I respect all the ideas, efforts, and opportunities you provided millions of women. I am encouraged and many women like me feel so good to be the member of this good journey. I believe that women play very crucial role in building homes, society and nations. Women can be the leader; they have the power of strong heroes. With each other support we are not week, we are strong. And till our last breath with we have the courage of a positive change in this destroyed world.

Your contribution to World pulse

Dear Raeesa,

It is wonderful to hear that you found a forum to express your experience. As a person, who also came from a Patriarchal society, I can relate with your experience. As you mentioned, very often gender discrimination starts in our own homes. It is also nice that you mentioned your nice male friends. There are good men in every society who are working with women to break gender barriers.

Thank you for your post.
