What is the “Global Sisterhood”?

Something almost magical happened as the words of these women went viral… at… Others started taking notice. One such lady is from Pakistan who wears a veil  living in a male dominated society. In a land where many women are denied education she has a master’s degree. Many are not allowed to be employed and she works as woman’s rights activist through SAWERA. In the part of rural Pakistan where she lives, females are not part of decision making but yet, she decided to reach out to the United States-based Empowering Women Radio. Hena Gul listened to Dr. Shellie’s interview with “Empowered Girl – Empowered World” conference leader Haseena Patel in South Africa. It is through Haseena that Dr. Shellie skypes in to schools to work with Power Circles of teenage girls in South Africa. Hena reached out to Empowering Women Radio and she was introduced to ladies with similar missions. After she bonded with Dr. Shellie and the connections were formed with incredible women around the world… Hena created the phrase a “Global Sisterhood” for what we are experiencing through Empowering Women.
