Want to a part of the first Women’s Web community-created video? Here’s your chance!
In a month’s time, we’ll have Mother’s Day (May 10th, 2015) coming by! It is a great day to tell our mothers how much they matter to us – but if you are a mom, how about taking the time to think about your own impact as a mom?
That’s what our #MomsForABetterWorld campaign is all about!
Your thoughts on making this world a better place, with your child.
Said or unsaid, seen or felt – children learn their lessons from us in ways we do not realize! For this Mother’s Day – take a short (up to 30 seconds) video of yourself – or have a friend take it while you speak. Share the one thing you would tell, show or teach your child to make this world a better place.
We will select the best snippets to feature in the very first Women’s Web video being created for Mother’s Day.
We will also be featuring some of the participating mums on Women’s Web to talk about an issue dear to their hearts.
Join us and be a part of this beautiful project: Let us be the change we want to see in the world around us!
Deep inside we’ve all wished we could do something to make this a better world, haven’t we? We always talk about leaving a better tomorrow for our children, but it is our children who will create that tomorrow!
Talk about anything that matters to you, and that you would like to see in your child – it could be as small as obeying traffic rules to something as weighty as speaking up against injustice.

yowoto is India’s first community platform, by and for parents, to make raising kids easier. It is a soon-to-be mobile app to connect local moms, because it does take a village to raise a child.

Relatives kissing children's penises made me wonder how this is leaving boys vulnerable to potential abuse under the garb of affection.
As we witness in all Indian family gatherings – whether a wedding, a birthday, or a summer vacation – nostalgia soaks us all.
However, one such gathering exposed me to a horrific practice that, though common in many houses worldwide, is very problematic.
It all started with my horror at hearing one of the supposedly funny anecdotes about my cousin’s birth.
If I have to adopt then why should I marry him? My clock is ticking and I want a child more than a husband.”
“Aunty what should I do? Tell naa! Guide me, help me to decide please,” Ruchi implored.
I, from my vantage point of view of sixty-five years, watched her thirty-something-year face full of hope, indecision, and preparedness to be happy or unhappy.
