VOF Week 1:(Small Change Makes a Big Difference)
Though Women care their families, they are neglected from hundreds years ago. No one speaks for them; their voices are diminishing sometimes as a daughter, a sister, a mother or as a wife. They have less access to education, employment, property, and training then men. In addition, women are politically and economically backwards because women's literacy rate is very low compared to men in Nepal though they covered 50% of total population. Since media is a most effective way to raise our voice, as a part of modern technologies Web 2.0 allows a golden opportunity by providing the space for women to speak for their own.
Web 2.0 is a great solution to empower women because women have words to speak but didn’t have voice to rise for their rights and this is a best time to speak for their own. It also helps to share stories and knowledge by women to global community. Although, Women are from different country, they can share problems, experiences and solutions with the same interest people around the world via internet. Women will lead the world to solve every global issue. So Web 2.0 will help to balance the number of women in organizations and companies. This is a unique way to empower women. Women will raise their neglected voice through the world pulse from every corner of the world and shake the world.
It is exciting because I believe Pulse Wire will give a chance to use the tools of modern technology and Internet by providing training to me. It will help me to speak out as a reporter. I have imagined if I would have the opportunities, I would tell my stories to others and also speaks for others. I would speak about global issues and its solution. This is an incredible opportunities for me to develop and speak myself because web 2.0 has provide me my space. For an instance, When I published my journal “A Journey of My Life” I didn’t have words to explain how I feel when somebody read my story and encourage and support me. It was a great support for me from the global community. When I get admiration and inspiration from some of my world pulse friends and member, I do not have the limit of my happiness. I feel as a writer to myself though I am poor in writing. World pulse realizes me the power of words which is a key to shake the world.
It empowered me to be united, to speak for myself and also understand others. As an individual, I get chance to know the real world how women’s are suffering and how their voices are ignored? How can we raise our voices from modern technology? In fact I am proud to join world pulse and it will be my pleasure if I get chance to attain citizen journalism training from world pulse. Providing a training seems small but this small change will make a big different in my life.
