VOF Week 2 (Lucy M)
My passion is achieving a just society free from all forms of discrimination against women. I am aware, that this can be achieved through change of attitude, practices, policies and legislation. This change is mainly possible through communication. We need to talk about issues affecting women so that we can bring change. We need to talk to the different change agents so that we can influence them to bring about the desired change.
I am a member of the Association of Women in Development. I regularly get updates from them on women's issues around the world. One day, as I was going through my mail. I saw a great opportunity. An opportunity where my voice could be heard on issues touching on women. I went to the website and found out that there were many others passionate about women's rights. I got excited. Soon I was posting my articles and getting feedback. Expressing my feelings on women's rights issues and sharing with others. I also got an opportunity to read about what others were writing about women's issues.
At Pulsewire, I am at home. Everyday I come across an issue that is facing women and Pulsewire provides me with an opportunity to share this information. It also provides me with an opportunity to see how others view the same issue from all over the world. I am able to comment on what others have posted and I also receive feedback on what I have posted. I am finally at home.
