Welcome to Half the World

Kari Egge - VelkommenA very warm welcome to my blog, Halve Verden or Half the World.  I am Kari Egge, the owner of this homepage.

My aim with this blog is that it will contribute to debate, sharing of knowledge about women rights and issues women struggle with around the world.  Women’s Rights and gender equality are not given anywhere, and women must therefore continously struggle to gain respect and claim our rights.

We need to support each other and share knowlegde and insights, which will increase understanding among policy- and decision makers, and change attitudes among gate keepers on rights realisation for girls and women.

Over the last months, we have seen increased positive interest for Women’s Rights and gender equality issues and a revitalized women’s movement, especially in the west.

To gain momentum and increase the engagement, we need to continue to mobilise women everywhere to join the global movement for change. It is the only way we can win the battle against unjustice and suppression of our rights! I am looking forward to working with you and ensure you that I will play my role as facilitator, trainer and mobiliser in our joint struggle.

Please note that this  home page has got a menu on top where you are directed to the respective areas my blog covers.

In the menu you will be directed to information about me and my company, Half the World. Half the World offers Leadership Development Programmes for women, take on consultancies and other assignment like public speaking. I am also blogging at the Women’s Corner about Women’s Rights, Women Leadership, and the situation of women in Norway and around the world. For English posts,  Please select this on the English Logo button in Women’s Corner. 

On the menu, you also find information about Half the World’s partners in Norway and overseas. This information will be updated as the number of partners increase or change. Please feel free to suggest partners and organisations I should contact and partner with where you live.  Please use the contact form under the menu point “Contact me” for this purpose.

Half the World is the English version of my Norwegian blog Halve Verden. This English version is first and foremost aimed at the broad international women’s network that I am part of . Since Half the World also offers leadership development programmes for women, I will also share information about these opportunities for learning by presenting my leadership development programmes.

” To care is to share “, is a slogan I fully support. Therefore, please feel free to share the information about my blog and Half the World with other women in your and other women’s networks. My aim is to see women’s networks grow, and that we use them to support each other across the world.
