About the campaign
This Campaign ended August 2014.
In early 2014, World Pulse launched its WWW: Women Weave the Web Campaign, aimed at crowdsourcing the wisdom of grassroots women leaders like you on issues related to digital inclusion and empowerment. Our campaign engaged the community in three phases; we kicked off with the Digital Access phase to find out about challenges you have accessing the Internet and the solutions you and your community are developing. We then turned our focus to Digital Literacy and subsequently to Digital Empowerment, gathering your ideas on the tools you need to fully espouse the web, as well as how the Internet empowers you to create real and powerful change on the ground.
Throughout the campaign, your stories on digital inclusion and empowerment flooded World Pulse in an uproar we never could have imagined! We received 590 submissions from nearly 70 countries around the globe, all advocating for a world where women and girls are empowered to access and harness the transformative power of digital tools. Community members also helped identify nearly 100 safe spaces around the world, where women could safely log on to the web.
