Hope needed, hope found!

I woke up today late and tired, looking for source of hope.
Searching the internet for any positive thing. My soul feeds and grows on hope, positivity, and above all, faith.
I kept on looking till, by chance, I found this;

Muzvare Betty Makoni Radio Show Empowers women and girls Worldwide 

And this is what is written on their page about the show:

Our topic for the radio show is about women in warn torn countries who are left to pick up the pieces, and women who not only survive but thrive. Our guest our Marie Langharn, from Rwanda, lost families members during the Genocide in Rwanda. Marie was with the UN during the Genocide, and was protected. Heidi Levandusk born and raised in Panama, Central America. Heidi has traveled to many third world countries such as Cambodia and Vietnam. She's seen the devastation and heartache of countries where women have suffered from war.

Best of luck for all women all over the world who are trying to push the boundaries away, and not only save themselves, but help to empower other women too.
I am so proud of each one of you!

MMW: Saudi Women Set Their Sights on the Right to Vote

Last March, Saudi authorities stated that half the seats in the municipal council in the next September 2011 run would be elected, rather than selected by the monarch himself as usual. But when they implemented elections, they neglected to include women’s votes. When asked why, the kingdom’s electoral commission mentioned it was because of logistic-related difficulties in sex-segregated election stations, the same reason that was previously used back in 2005. Almost six years have passed and nothing has changed, proving only that logistic-related difficulties are only an excuse for not making changes.

Good luck to all Saudi women!

My most sincere wishes and prayers to all the brave women challenging the no-driving rule in Saudi Arabia.

Today, all women with international driving license, Saudi or not, are driving NOW all through the streets risking their freedom, jobs, and lives for that.

All my support, respect, and love!

MMW - Manal Al-Sharif and the Ban on Saudi Women Driving

Last week, Manal Al-Sharif was arrested because she posted a video of herself driving around the streets of Riyadh on YouTube. Because it is illegal for women to drive in Saudi Arabia, both she and her brother were detained. Al-Sharif has since been released, having pledged to take no further part in the Women2Drive campaign.
