"VOF Week 4: (Unit of Power)."

Studies around the globe have shown that significantly increased levels of women's participation and leadership along the political or every spectrum are necessary for transforming the terms of political debate and implementing policies that advance the human rights and well-being of all people. I strongly believe that women, working in partnership, will learn the skills and implement the strategies needed to secure human rights, contribute to the development of their communities, and ultimately create a more peaceful world.

Personally I believe on collaborative power. Power of work and unity. My vision is to see women performing her duties as she want. A clear and free vision. I am a Pakistani woman and in Pakistan women are so deprived, she has no powers. If someone looks in power that is just like a roll play in drama. Because there are so many reasons behind them to pressurize. It is very difficult for a woman to make a decision for herself even at every step of life. Considering the diversity of Pakistani society, female empowerment has different meanings or women from different strata. Her status is always lower than the male partner. She is underprivileged in getting education, food, health care and freedom of choice of partner, number of children and other essentials of life. No wonder Pakistan is among those countries where women live shorter than men do. Like many other legitimate and logical issues, in Pakistan gender issues in general and of men in particular are an untapped area of research and occupy no position in the policy and snatch no place in the planning process. Every night we see a new dream and next day we wake up for try to bring that true.

In last decade, I have been get in touch with training and development, monitoring and evaluation, event management, design and implement training programs, research projects, and practical inputs for policy making. I have actively been involved in forming community organizations at grass root level mostly in rural and disadvantaged communities in the country through providing trainings on social activism, community empowerment, participatory management, human rights and gender mainstreaming in nation-building and all these are duty of a correspondent and I am trying my best to take advantage of all above these.

World pulse is a place where we all can speak freely, share ideas, problems, solutions and views. By a correspondent of world pulse I can raise my voice around the world; I can share my pain, happiness and every feeling. I can aware the world with my and my communities problems. Talk on experiences gains from anywhere and got compliments from companions from whole world. It gives me courage to work more significant ally and affectively. All these comments and courage give me a push out to bring true my dreams.

need for change

I always feel sad for the woman in Pakistan when reading of their lives and think how hard it must be to gain access to reading materials that will help give words to their thoughts and to get the internet connections to share these thoughts with the rest of us. I do hope you become one of the correspondents since it is so important for a good and decent woman like yourself to be given a voice and a chance to speak for the other woman around and in a way that raises your whole community to a better place.

"Clear and free vision"

Qudsia,

You write that you would like to see women performing duties as they want - seems like a simple enough goal - yet it takes so much work and struggle to pursue this goal for the future. You go on to write what you yourself have been doing to pursue this goal. It is wonderful to read what you have been doing over the past years - some much needed community work. I hope that you will maintain your clarity of vision and your strength to do this work and continue with efforts to make dreams come true.

A personal passion

Dear Qudsia,

Thank you so much for your beautiful writing and sharing your personal passion for Pakistan and the dreams you have for Pakistani women. I, too, have a very sweet bond with Pakistan as I lived in Lahore for a few years as a young child with my father who is an engineer from the U.S (he was working on dams and waterways). I have so many wonderful memories of this time in Lahore - it is hard to imagine a Pakistan that isn't what I remember as a child.

Thank you for reminding me once again of the plight of women in Pakistan - I hold it close to my heart. I hope you will continue writing and voicing these stories as I will continue to do so here in the U.S. Please stay in action around these initiatives as so many women and children need you - and I promise you I will do the same here.

I look forward to staying in touch and envisioning BIG dreams for the women of Pakistan with you.

Women in Pakistan

Dear Qudsia,

Your post for VOF Week Four showed how little we know about the situation of our immediate neighbours. Why, I have just begun to learn about the struggles of the women in Kashmir who are setting peace initiatives into action having lost their husbands, fathers, sons and brothers to the conflict. Thank you very much for sharing the issues with us.
