Problem of My Community

Posted September 26, 2011 from China

There are plenty of harsh problems that haunt my community. Among them the most ignoring one of my concern is the education of girls. The long traditions of patriarchal institutions and the thought that women should surbordinate to male make it hard to educate girls to realise that they could be the master of their own life. The too much attention paid on 'femmine' obscures girls' ambitions to pursue own career. They take for granted that their future is more linked with the domesctic chores rather than setting own path in outside society.

My solution to this problem is to let the parents and tearchers realize that girls can do everything than boys can do. Girls possess the same abilities that the boys enjoy. To achieve this goal, the proper propoganda is necessary. Therefore, both the mass media and the arising SNS networks should take responsibility to educate people the importance of letting girls to realize they can have ambitions.

The importance of Pulse Wire and other online communites in this regard is to dispense the illuminate and aspiring messages for girls. Since nowadays, almost the little girls in my community are able to use Internet and they appear to be more attached to this new technology, the application of using these online communities to educate girls will be of great helpful. To remind the girls that they can do everything will lead to the real equality between men and women.

thx, sister! I am sincerely expecting girls can find meanings in themselves rather than to find that from men.

Dear Wendy,

Thank you for this hopeful article about overcoming sexism and patriarchal barriers. To make your writing even more powerful, try to include some personal stories or examples to illustrate your points. You could also be more specific about how online communities can connect and empower young women, and how to engage women in these online communities.

Looking forward to your future articles!

Sharon

Wendy,

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with all of us! It is encouraging to me to hear that many young girls do have access to the internet, and hopefully will have access to different points of view, to people who they can look up to, and to ideas for their own futures. I look forward to hearing more from you!

Take care, Hannah

thx sister! I have a strong faith in that Internet, the new media, could empower women who have long been ignored in patriarchal history with opportunities and new visions to be themselves as women rather than being women attached to men.
