What most excites me about web 2.0? It’s an opportunity that I will grasp to be mentored into realizing my dream, and be a voice for other women globally. It’s an opportunity I realized was very necessary since I experienced the wind of change in my life. It excites me to realize that it’s possible after all to voice my experience so that others may be encouraged to speak.

The solutions Web 2.0 will bring to the global women empowerment include the following;

Web 2.0 will create attention and an increased engagement from women, which in turn will create a lot of evangelism on women issues, globally.

Dear Milly, I find your use of the term "evangelism" to be a powerful way to describe increased engagement among women to increase women's empowerment globally. I pray that the "winds of change" that have blown through you continue to blow in a positive direction.

Thank you Jan for your kind comments.I believe that women are capable of so much more than they are able to demonstrate.I look at my life and what i have gone through,and wish someone should not go it alone the way i did.


I enjoyed reading your first assignment entry. Your ability to clearly think through many aspects of an idea, in this case, the empowerment potential of Web 2.0 is astounding! I love the list of points you created, covering the many ways blogging and this technology can impact women's lives.

I think your own words speak very clearly and loudly. I would encourage you to, maybe, not use the questions provided in the assignment in your journal entry, except as a guide for your own draft. And using HTML tags like strong and emphasis are a great way to separate the content into paragraphs, as well!

I am thrilled to hear the personal empowerment you are experiencing through Voices of the Future and am convinced, along with you, that this will continue. Keep it Up!
