Imagining Ourselves: A Global Generation of Women

I meant to link to this project a while back after I met the one of the founders at TED. Better late than never…Imagining Ourselves is “a platform for young women to create positive change in their lives, their communities, and the world. The project includes not only this groundbreaking online exhibit, but also a series of global events, a celebrity blog on Yahoo!, and a dazzling book published by New World Library. The goals of Imagining Ourselves are to increase young women in leadership positions, to connect our esteemed partners (such as the Global Fund for Women and the World YWCA) to a broad audience, and to increase international community among this first global generation of women. The magic happens when young women are able to form connections across international boundaries—and use those connections to improve each other’slives.”

Please visit the site…lots of wonderful stories and images and a great list of action resources.

- My condolences to those who lost loved ones in yesterday’s tragic airplane crash. I am especially saddened by the death of Bonaya Godana,. There is very little that is admirable about Kenyan politicians, but Godana was one of the few exceptions. I have always admired him because of the challenges he overcame to get to where he was and his brilliance – he was one of the few politicians in Kenya who you could listen to without cringing, very smart and articulate and he was always trying to keep the government on toes as the deputy leader of the opposition.

  • Movie star and singer Patrick Bruel seemed to be
    one among France’s biggest stars over the ’90s, first
    making his or her name being a teen idol and leading an excellent
    to traditional French chanson within the new millennium.
    Bruel was given birth to Patrick Benguigui inside Tlemcen, Algeria, on May 14, 1959.
    The father abandoned a family when Patrick was merely a year
    old, and in 1962, after Algeria received its independence, his new
    mother moved to France, residing from the Paris suburb associated with Argenteuil.
    A fine soccer player in the youth, Patrick first decided
    upon the idea of being a singer after seeing Michel Sardou perform in 1975.

    As chance might have it, acting would provide him his first achievement; first-time director Alexandre Arcady ran an advertisement seeking a man with a French-Algerian (or
    “pied-noir” in People from france slang) accent for his movie Le Coup hun Sirocco.
    Benguigui (as having been still called) responded
    and won the part. The next year, he spent time
    in Nyc, where he found Gérard Presgurvic, later to become his primary composer.
