"VOF Week 1: (Web 2.0 is my TOUNGE)."

210_1_ritratto_bn_08_jpg.jpg

Web 2.0 means for me like my TONGUE and THE BIG OPENED WINDOW. Through web 2.0 I can speck, I can share my ideas, feelings thoughts…and I can learn from others new thoughts. There are no limitations, gender violence and any discrimination. Every human being lives in the world any time they can share their own ideas. Most of the times in Africa men’s have the power than women to listen by others because the only reason for that is they are MENS. In Ethiopia Women’s have no right to speak before their husband’s speak or express their ideas. If you are women you are men follower. The web 2.0 is for us the best solution to hear others thoughts and hearing by others. I can speak, I can hear, I can lead, I can teach, I can feed my self new skills, learning’s and information … Information is Power, so I am the empowered women in the world. Thanks for new technologies.Nature give us the equality for womens and mens to share their ideas together.With out mens we will be one handed womens.

The most common way people give up their power
is by thinking they don't have any.

~ Alice Walker ~

We have web 2.0 to create a strong network each other.Don't give up to share ideas together.Informations create an opportunities to chnage the world thinkings and we are the moderators...

Your thoughts are exactly right and I'm sure we all want to be heard or noticed.
But we must respect men also. They are MAN

With Love!!

information is power

I agree with you and that we can empower each other by talking and sharing with each other and helping each discover their worth. It is not always easy to feel your worth (my daughters sometimes do not understand why I still sometimes feel "worthless" though that happens less and less) and believe in yourself.

I think that is the best part of this place since we each take what we need, give what we can and then take that good feeling and share it in our lives with others.

Thank you!

Mahlet,

I love the passion and enthusiasm you express for the potential web 2.0 holds for women. I would love to hear more about how specifically you have utilized web 2.0 in your own empowerment, and how you have seen it in action or would like to see it in action in your community.

Keep up the great work!

Great to hear from you!

Mahlet,

Greetings and blessings. I hope you are doing well this week. It was a pleasure to read your work for Week 1!

I love how I can hear your voice through these words, across the world. I can tell that you're very excited about the potential benefits of Web 2.0 for women AND men.

I enjoyed how you explain the problems of the past, and women remaining silent, but more so, I loved how you use a quotation to illustrate your point. Sometimes it is powerful to bring in other perspectives! I also love your comment that without men women would be "one handed". As a man, I have the challenge of explaining to other men that we are "one handed" without strong women in our lives. We're all in this together!

For the next assignment, it would be great to hear more from you! I can tell you have a lot of ideas and inspiration, and I would love to hear about your life and what you're doing in Ethiopia. Keep up the great work!
