For a long time women were considered to be n° 2. Even in the beginnings of our lives, God created the first man (Adam). Also according to the Bible, the first woman was cursed because of his mortal sin by eating the fruit of passion. Both situations suggest instead that gives women in several countries, especially for conservatives. Bad interpretation of the situation erodes our society. A stereotype against women that should be abolished. For eleven years as a journalist in the field, I made a trip of over 50,000 to 70,000 kilometers by car, on foot, by canoe. We visited very remote areas, where the murderers or the most dangerous criminals of Madagascar are hiding. Experiments that allowed us to see the situation in which our sisters, our mothers, our friends live. They still suffer from all kinds of submissions, exploitations and even humiliations. We published articles to inform peoples and leaders, they are not sufficient because being a woman meant for everybody low as decorative objects or domestic workers, etc ... they don’t react because they are afraid or held to respect their customs and traditions. Most newspapers are for people in town. Radios and televisions are only dreams for most part of the Malagasy population there isn’t electricity. Caring and wanting to help defend our rights and duties, I did not hesitate to jump on this opportunity: become a member of this site. Thanks to the communication service of the U.S. Embassy in Madagascar I have read the Pulsewire.com. The missions and the goals and the values of World Pulse truly reflect my agreement. The site itself is a new medium to express and to better serve other women, especially our compatriots. Looking for another way to improve my knowledge, to enrich my professional experiences and especially to become their spokesperson, I decided to participate in the VOF 2011. In life we must not settle for what we have, even if it is already satisfactory. We are required to seek what is best compared to what we did. Only two months with Worldpulse community, I read many articles and saw various perspectives on our lives as a woman. I am impressed, surprised, pleased, excited and sad. But all has opened my mind and convinced me to participate in fight for women. First with Worldpulse, with associations and local NGOs after. So be quit! Because when we want; we can!
