Letter to my African Sisters, “Technology and the Heart… Women's Health”

Dear Daughters,
I am writing to you about the health of your hearts and the power you have been given as women. I know life can be a long, hard road of oppression, bad deals and injustice. It is easy to harden your hearts. Have faith, your road is coming to an end. You have been given evolutionary gifts that you are just beginning to understand and leverage. I am writing you to tell you that we see you standing proud and transforming the world, but you can do so much more, so much faster.

You are no longer alone: For over 50,000 years, men have held women in isolation to control them.
Today, the device in your hand empowers you to connect with every man, woman and child in the world. From your phone, you have medical access from all the universities in the world. Sites like will empower you with all you need to know about your bodies. Your voice can reach the globe on social injustice. In a moment, you can reach neighbors, families, groups or militia. Free of charge, the world will educate you from top universities and set you free. All you have to do is “Seek and you will find.” Sound familiar? 

ARISE is published quarterly and sold in over 20 countries. It has established itself as a mainstream magazine for modern Africans, African-Americans and the diaspora, and through its newly relaunched website, Facebook and Twitter pages, ARISE continues to build a global community.
ARISE had its successful soft launch in October 2008 and hit newsstands in February 2009, coinciding with the debut ARISE African Fashion Collective show at NYFW. It went on to win Launch Of The Year at the APA International Customer Publishing Awards 2009 and took Highly Commended in the same category at the British Society of Magazine Editors Awards.
