Review for Women's WorldWide Web, Paris, , France
All I truly want in this world is to leave it a better place. This is why The Women’s Worldwide Web is such an important part of who I am and what I do. One of the most powerful aspects is the way in which we aspire to harness our collaborative edge so that everyone who is part of our community can play a part in the virtuous cycle of weaving the women’s web.
One very touching and tangible way this manifested was through my 42nd birthday in 2012. Very much in the spirit of our collaborative edge, we sparked a virtuous cycle by connected W4, poetry and social marketing. I came up with ‘Births for my Birthday,’ a crowdfunding online-off line event to sponsor safe births through W4 Field Partner Birthing Project USA! What could be more poetic, activist and virtuous than ushering in safe births for both mothers and babies who would otherwise be at risk? By connecting my poetry family at The louderARTS Project with my social justice family at W4 and harnessing the connectivity of Facebook, I succeeded in partying like I have never done before. I matched the funds generated, and W4 matched the total matched funds! The results are amazing: 500 safe birth kits, that’s 500 louderBABIES!
There are endless ways, all inspiring and empowering that we can all weave the women's web, and it is our hope to form a collective of change-agents who propel the virtuous cycle.
