<strong>Introducing a New Frequency in Global Media</strong><br /> <br /> <strong>World Pulse is a media enterprise</strong> covering global issues through the eyes of women.<br /> <br /> <strong>We are dedicated </strong>to listening to and broadcasting the unheard voices and innovative solutions of women worldwide.<br /> <br /> <strong>We produce</strong> World Pulse Magazine as well as PulseWire, an interactive community newswire where women can speak for themselves to the world and connect to solve global problems.<br /> <strong><br /> From web to print, we&rsquo;ve created a forum</strong> where women&rsquo;s voices can rise from the ground up and connect across oceans, continents, and cultural barriers to create a new world.<br /> <br /> Become a part of the Pulse. <a href="http://www.worldpulse.com" target="_blank">Join Us.</a><br /> <br /> <br /> <strong>Why Women</strong><br /> <br /> <strong>Women and girls are the answer.</strong><br /> <br /> The global balance is shifting; women are shaping the future of our communities and nations. In fact, most international institutions and organizations agree that empowering women and girls is the fastest way to solve world problems. It&rsquo;s a movement that is centered around solutions rather than blame. It&rsquo;s a movement that&rsquo;s already begun and World Pulse is here to broadcast their voices around the globe.<br /> <br /> <em> Despite the fact that women represent more than a third of working journalists around the world, less than 1% of the world&rsquo;s editors, department heads, and media owners are women. </em>&mdash;International Federation of Journalists<br /> <br /> <em> 7% of women are cited in global news stories on government and politics</em> &mdash;International Women's Media Foundation<br /> <br /> <em> 1% of world's financial resources owned by women</em> &mdash;United Nations<br /> <br /> <em> 15% of women in top global decision making positions</em> &mdash;United Nations<br /> <br /> <strong>Including women&rsquo;s voices benefits our world.</strong><br /> <br /> When women's voices are equally heard and supported in the media, it results in increased family and child wellbeing, more investment in education and health care, better economic growth and job creation, as well as proper transparency and accountability. It accelerates social healing after trauma, as well as information sharing and problem-solving. Most importantly, it strengthens community networks, environmental stewardship, and the democratic process, as well as arts, culture, and creativity.<br /> <br /> <br />
