29th September update: Something we are working on slowly towards this Project
VOICES OF WOMEN WORLDWIDE &VOWW-TV “exclusive interview” with HRH Princess Basmah Bint Saud attending the 67th United Nations General Assembly in New York
Wow, Vinanti Sarkar Castellarin!!!
What an amazing letter from you and thank you for including me in your Voices of Women Worldwide TV family. I have so much to learn and I believe we can all figure it out slowly. As you know I have my own Documentary project : “A household of Kontinuance” in development phase. It is slow as I am very slow and have to learn from the Giants of the industry before me. I am so very grateful to the small family of Movie-makers and TV series creators around the world who have faith in the shared visions we hold ; that is to tell the truth in whatever way we mirror that to the world and to further the human race. see link: http://www.householdkontinuance.wordpress.com
I’m honoured that you would like me to assist as Producer in this series. I have no idea how well I would manage but I’m just going to count on the fact that my wonderful mentor Eva Monley (RIP) must have seen something in me every so often even though I still haven’t completed the project she wanted me to do since I do not know how the book would end, it is impossible to turn it into a Movie….hahahaa. Slowly…slowly….
In the meantime. I thank you Vinanti for being the Founder of Voices of Women Worldwide TV, asking me to be your Asia Representative for VOWW tv and inviting me onto your production team. I hope I live up to your faith in me, as we both agree; It is impossible to measure the expedience in which TRUST enable incredible things to be achieved. Without it, between two or a group of people working together, the whole Project would Ring hollow and would not resonate with any long term audience because it would lack the depth that all Great Artistic projects require.
Our meeting because I was so caught up in the Inspiring Women’s Sumit 2012 was a brilliant and wonderful bit of Kismet ( I love this word, a bit like Karma…but so much less colloquial these days.) I hope we continue to support one another’s visions for the decades to come.
P.S yes, lets start little on one side and build big…I totally agree! Yes it is not right that a woman’s mouth must be covered up to not speak and the veil is not an appropriate way to silence women.
P.P.S Lol. Seriously Vina..You know I’ve never heard of most of the women you mentioned except Julia Gillard and that was an unfortunate accident ….hahaha…..but then again, we are even, you said you had never heard of INXS when I was going on about how much one of my ex looked like Michael Hutchence the love rat who cheated on Helena Christiansen with Paula Yates the sk8nk lol.! I love love love our generational gaps. I love the humour in our discussions, intelligent but hilarious!X
LETTER from Vinanti, founder of VOWWtv:
Dear Cecilia -
Understand you are busy … but we are seriously moving into corporate and govenrment fundraising sponsorships for the TV-series : WOMEN WHO DARED … And wanted to pass this email by you … for your feedback. Cecilia – if you feel it runs as a good story for your blog – would like to get feedback from your readers ?
VOICES OF WOMEN WORLDWIDE INC. has undertaken to produce digital videos TV series titled “WOMEN WHO DARED … to be elected Presidents and Prime Ministers”(1960-2012) and negotiations with several corporate and government sponsors on the budget funding has been scheduled for August.
Presently we are sending out a survey inviting discussions on how many business women really know about what is happening around the global village business world . It seeks to find out how many women leaders can you count on your fingers – how many political women leaders have you read about who successfully governed and are governing their countries ?
Have you ever thought of doing business in these countries ? etc.,
Everyone has heard of Princess Diane, Mother Theresa,Hillary Rodham Clinton, Benazir Bhutto, Baroness Margaret Thatcher,etc. and this reality is due to how and what the world media predicts and promotes on the question of marketing information to sell their newspapers and magazines.
Not much has been written in print, photographs and TV, elaborating on the strengths of political women leaders who successfully accomplished reaching their roles as political Heads of State and Heads of Government. Most of them were and are strong voices of women who dared to taken on their elected roles and lead and are leading their nations.
They welcome global business EXPOs, forum involving collaborations, joint-ventures and partnership. Major delegations have and are being successfully conducted, but mostly comprise of major corporations and businessmen.
With the sudden rise of several prominent female political leader staking center stage, VOWW’s R & D shows that women political leaders from 1960-2012 – had and are indeed “democratizing the role of political leadership”. No longer are leaders found among the national elite of societies but being elected from the grassroots. Would you agree ?
How many of you have read about the elections of Angela Dorothea Merkel,née Kasner, Chancellor of Germany; UN WOMEN’s Under-Secretary-General Michelle Bachelet, former President of Chile; New Zealand’s three-times elected Prime Minister, Helen Clark heading the UNDP at the United Nations; H.E. Ellen Johnson-Sealeaf twice-elected President of Liberia? Patribha Patil, first woman President of India ? And most recently,elections of Julia Gillard, Prime Minister of Australia, Dlamini-Zuma President of South Africa and Joyce Baua of Malawi on the continent of Africa and who are the two women in Brazil and Argentina elected as President governing their countries today ?
Firstly, would you be interested in sharing your opinions to make WOMEN WHO DARED TV series more than just another propaganda digital videos ? VOWW invites your views and suggestions ?
Secondly, VOW-TV network invites you to seriously consider becoming involved with gender equality and female empowerment and “be part of the change happening” with corporate social responsibility (csr), as we are designing and scripting soul searching studies of how women become leaders and are following the trend of a more individualistic and transformational psychological process to define “new” leadership role models for the future … presenting unique examples for the younger generations ?
Interested business women around the world are invited to give their opinions and contact
