Greetings all from beautiful Beirut. I'm sitting in an internet cafe trying to put together part of the forthcoming issue on China. All day long I am in touch with inspiring women - this morning I met with a savvy businesswoman opening a chain of chic sunglasses stores across the Middle East, then I met with a leading Lebanese feminist to get her views on the women's movement here for my dissertation research, and now I'm typing up the words of some fabulous women from China that I can't wait to share with the PulseWire and World Pulse community.

All for now,
