Introducing myself and my journal: Gender equality: Is it a blame game?

About Me:
I am a young Ghanaian woman committed to promoting women's rights and gender equality. I enjoy reading, sharing experiences, mentoring and and making friends. I am married with two sons. I work with an African sub-regional gender and policy advocacy NGO. Our work focuses on four of the twelve critical areas in the BFA - governance, peacebuilding, poverty and ICTs. Coming from a general election which saw a reduction in the number of women parliamentarians (from 10.8% to 8.6%), my greatest concern now is to ensure that my country achieves the 30% minimum representation for women in politics and decision making by 2012. Any information on strategies to enhance my advocacy work is welcome. This training programme by Worldpulse is the best news I am hearing this year because my desire to improve my writing and networking skills has been answered.

My Passions:
Reduce the vulnerability of women and Children

My Challenges:
time management

My Vision for the Future:
To see a world inwhich women and men work together without discrimination

My Areas of Expertise:
Advocacy, Training, Writing

Welcome

I am so thrilled that you have joined our community. Your country has had a long struggle with governance and it is good to see that it is moving towards greater stability but as you state, there is still much work to be done in creating an environment where women feel empowered to speak out. It is through women such as yourself that stories are being told, movements are being started and laws are being reformed. I applaud your contributions on behalf of the women in Ghana and we are honoured to have you as part of our PulseWire community.

Also, I am so happy that you have joined our Voices of Our Future group. You might want to browse through all of our community groups as it's a great way to build powerful networks, find members with similar interests to your own, share ideas or actions. With the group journal, you can brainstorm solutions, pose questions, test ideas and create a support network for your visions. You are now a member of this vibrant community and I look forward to reading more about your passions, ideas, concerns and dreams.

Again, welcome and I know that you will find PulseWire to be engaging, inspiring and thought-provoking.
Janice
PulseWire Community Director

Thanks

Thanks for the warm welcome Pulsewire. Your contribution towards the women's movement cannot be under-estimated. I am yet to hear of any platform such as Pulsewire which brings women from all around the globe to interact, share ideas and debate amongst themselves. This work must go on and I applaud your team for your hard work
