Why World Pulse?
There is no nation in the world where women have equal voice.
Governments, NGOs, and even journalists frequently speak for women and girls and define their causes. This problem is particularly acute for women leaders in impoverished, remote, and conflict-ridden areas who struggle to access technology and obtain the skills to channel their solutions to the world stage.
Now, women''s voices can literally rise from the ground up and reach a supportive global public through World Pulse''s web and print media channels.
Programs: We produce World Pulse Magazine as well as PulseWire, an interactive community newswire where women can speak for themselves to the world and connect across borders to solve global problems.
From web to print, we have created a forum where women's voices can rise from the ground up and connect across oceans, continents, and cultural barriers to create a new world.

World Pulse's vision is to enable women's voices to be heard globally. The organization has created PulseWire, an online network that enables women to tell their stories and get feedback and encouragement from other women around the world. An example of one group that has formed on PulseWire is the Book Group that reads books written by women who tell their accounts of what has happened in their part of the world. What makes this group so special is you can get feedback and additional insights from women who actually live in the region where this book's action takes place. WorldPulse also trains women correspondents to tell what is happening in their part of the world. This provides an opportunity for women who would not ordinarily have a voice to speak out about the challenges they face in their communities. After the Haiti earthquake, women from Haiti were able to report on what was happening on the ground -- stories that needed to be told.
