Biases, assumptions, and stereotypes – we know we have them, though we rarely admit to them. This week our global guest Samina Sundas, founder of American Muslim Voice, talked about traditional life growing up in Pakistan. How peculiar it was to hear that many of her friends and family “back there” don’t want to have their children watch American TV shows because they are too violent and disrespectful. Didn’t I just read that it is official, “Pakistan is the most dangerous country in the world?”
What Women Are Saying
"We live in a world designed to keep
real at a minimum. Global Room for Women is the first website that I've found (and I've looked) that promotes real conversations between real
people." - B. Samuel, Artist, Iowa.
"The Global Room was life changing for me. I was blown away! I am usually not impressed by these kinds of teleconferences but thought GRW was wonderful. It made me feel not so alone on this planet." - A. Olivier, Texas
"I am trying to find ways to change the world I inherited. The only way is through other people. The GRW feeds that part of me that needs to be opened and wants ideas and mutual experience to face the immense challenges. "
- M.Levy, Activist, Wisconsin
