Whoever you are, wherever you are, World Pulse believes it's time for your voice to be heard!

     

World Pulse publishes stories sourced directly from you, our community of changemakers. Every week, we release new calls for stories to get you talking about the issues that matter most. We believe everyone has a story to share, and that the world will be a better place when women are heard.

With every contribution, real stories and new ideas rise from the ground up. New audiences are inspired to connect with you and take action, and lives are changed through the power of voice.

Check back weekly for new calls for stories, and join a movement of women speaking out for change!

Let your voice rise

 

     

Being published deepened my commitment and my sense of belonging to this amazing community.

 


 

     

The publication of my story has taken me places, including getting published on TIME.com! Having my story on the Internet raised my profile—I was named one of 100 influential people in Africa in 2015 by New African Magazine, and I was recently accepted to Harvard Kennedy School on full scholarship. I strongly believe having my story out there enabled people to understand me and the causes I am passionate about better.

     

I think of World Pulse as that little journal I take every day and sit by the lake to write out my thoughts and feelings... It is the place I turn to, knowing my power is acknowledged and my effort appreciated.
