Redefining WWW thru World Pulse’s “Women Weave the Web” Campaign

We all know that “WWW” refers to the World Wide Web or simply the web. But this year, World Pulse, a partner of Foundation, is giving new meaning to WWW with the launch of their latest campaign called "WWW: Women Weave the Web".

Join World Pulse in supporting women who are using the Internet to transform the world. From the streets of Nairobi to the plazas of Buenos Aires, women are logging on and sparking change. Now is the time to break down the digital divide. Participate in the campaign to make sure that every woman can access the tools that will empower her!


The campaign will crowdsource the wisdom of grassroots women leaders on issues related to digital inclusion and empowerment. Through the three phases of the campaign (Digital Access, Digital Literacy, Digital Empowerment), women and their allies around the world will speak out on challenges they have accessing the Internet, the solutions communities are developing, and the ways in which the Internet empowers them to create change on the ground.


World Pulse will analyze the submitted testimonies and, in conjunction with partners, present them to important international forums, policy leaders, media outlets, and technology companies in order to better advocate for digital inclusion and empowerment for women.

How to Participate in the Campaign

  • WRITE IT! Write a story on your experiences and solutions to digital inclusion and empowerment for women.
  • MAP IT! Help us populate a map of women-friendly places to connect to the web; add your spot to our crowdmap.
  • SNAP IT! Upload a picture that speaks to the topic of women’s online access and inclusion.
  • WIN IT! Submit a story to the Women Weave the Web Campaign, and you’ll have the opportunity to win incredible prizes, including the $20,000 Lynn Syms Prize!
  • WEAVE IT! Read campaign submissions, comment on them, and build relationships with incredible women transforming their communities.


For detailed information on how to participate, visit the WWW campaign page.
