WELCOME!

Hi Margot,

Welcome to PulseWire! It is so exciting to have you here in the PulseWire community. I think that you will learn so much from the other women here, and I know that you have lots of knowledge and insight to offer as well. YAY!

You might consider joining some groups and sparking up a conversation! Or, if you have an idea for a group that doesn't already exist - you could start one! We could definitely use a group about fighting homelessness.

Here are a few I thought might interest you by looking at your interests:

Global Women's Leadership Network

Welcome!

It is exciting to see more and more people joining this place every day.

Also, I'm glad to see your passion in the general "community need" field, not just feminism-this place is rife with the feminism part ;) (not that that's a bad thing, of course) I hope to see you around the forums and the groups!
