I am certain that this October, in Salt Lake City Utah, USA, we will make known to the world that women's voices matter in all things. I am acting as an ambassador to the 2015 Parliament of the World's Religions http://ParliamentOfReligions.org. For the first time, this year, the parliament is having a "women's initiative."

In addition to asking my WP sisters and brothers to consider attending the parliament, I am working with World Pulse Sister Zeph https://www.worldpulse.com/en/community/users/sister-zeph, SHEROES United http://www.sheroesunited.org/, and One Billion Rising http://www.onebillionrising.org/events/women-of-the-world-we-rise/ to create a parade of people in support of social justice for women. Sister Urmila https://www.worldpulse.com/en/community/users/urmila-chanam/posts/34846 is bringing her menstrual hygiene campaign to the parade event.

I would love to have a LetsDoMore.com group join us in support of these efforts.

Dear Yvette,

Your enthusiasm for involving World Pulse, community members, and LetsDoMore.com in the event you are attending is palpable! Please do reach out directly to the folks at LetsDoMore.com if you wish to invite them to participate.

In solidarity,

Chelsea

Is there a way that we could connect some our WP sisters, like Olutosin in Nigeria, Phionah in Kenya, and Sister Zeph in Pakistan who are teaching women sewing, beading, and other hand work entrepreneurial skills with some of the major retailers listed on www.LetsDoMore.com?

Yvette

Dear Yvette,

Thank you for being so committed to making these kinds of connections! I am inspired by your passion.

World Pulse's goal is to provide a forum for women to connect. Our Economic Empowerment Group is an incubator for exactly these kinds of ideas! We do know of some additional organizations that work with women to develop entrepreneurial skills directly, including Vital Voices and Aid to Artisans
