Exceptional Women and Travel Destinations

Emma Timmis

British adventurer Emma Timmis, born on the 19th of February, 1980 considers herself a normal person even though she has run across Africa, almost twice.

When some people want a fitness challenge, they set themselves a small, achievable goal - such as running a 10-kilometer race or working out three times a week. Then there are others who fancy pushing themselves and they go to extreme lengths.

From cycling to hiking, climbing to skating, running, jumping, dancing and prancing. Emma has a passion for travel and tries to make her journeys as active as possible. "I have a desire to see the world but don't want to view it through a car window flying past at 60mph..."

At the age of 27 she became the first female to run the Freedom Trail, a 2,400 kilometer through track from Durban to Cape Town in South Africa. This later led to running West to East across the continent of Africa, from Namibia to Mozambique.

This mammoth run took Emma 89 days, covering the distance equal to 94 marathons, or almost 4,000 kilometers.

Over the last three years Emma has not been able to continue with any physical endeavours as she has struggled with an undiagnosed leg condition. But she decided to turn adversity into opportunity and recreate her life. Visit her profile at the link below and see how you can encourage her in her efforts.

Dana Hussein Abdul-Razak

Iraqi sprinter Dana Hussein Abdul-Razak (Arabic: دانة حسين عبدالرزاق ), born on January 3rd, 1986 in Baghdad, Iraq is a two time Olympian on Iraq's national track and field team, coached by Yousif Abdul-Rahman. Dana is a runner at the distances of 100, 200 and 400 meters.

Dana holds a bachelor’s degree in physical education from Baghdad University, she represented the Army, Sirwan, and Electricity Clubs. More than all her accomplishments - she is a beautiful, courageous and exceptional woman.

Iraqi sprinter Dana Hussein Abdul-Razak was devastated to learn she would not be allowed to participate in the Beijing Summer Olympics.

In a controversial decision by the International Olympic Committee, a ban was placed on Iraq that barred them from competing at the 2008 Summer Olympics because of what it said was the government's political interference in sports.

After having dodged sniper fire and roadside bombs in her daily walks to the University training field - which itself looked more like bombed out wreckage than a University sports training center - this devastating news still did not deter Dana from pressing on towards her goals. In the end she competed in both the Beijing and London Olympics.

Vandana Jain

Vandana Jain, born in India, raised in London and finally her travels found her in the Bronx where she is currently based. She saw vast differences between the cultures she experienced, but also felt a strong lack of self-expression in India.

In her move to New York, she found the American city quite different from London and this stirred several inner sensory notes. "All that created a polarity, a wabi-sabi in my personality, a yin and yang of nature versus nurture" and all of it started to come through in her expression as an artist.

"Music was always kind of a home spirit. My family would spend evenings singing and playing the piano. Having grown up in India, it certainly felt like the spirit of the Motherland too."

Vandana’s music is dark and mysterious yet not harsh or aggressive. In equal measure it expresses comfort and id often heart-rending. Her style floats lightly between dark-wave electronica and alternative music with a touch of Indian and Arabic flavor.

Troublesome Patriarchal Dominance - Time For More Women in Positions of Power

unique women of the world

Women from around the world that are living on the edge, doing something special, making a difference or generally in possession of a unique nature. In my book these women should be put in positions of power and allowed a chance to see what they would add to our world, instead of the men that promise blah-blah-blah and then fill their own pockets as well as the pockets of their buddies. The way I see it, any of this diverse group of women would be an improvement...

These are the kind of women that should be put in positions of power. They would make positive contributions with their time and resources and leave the world better for having been here. And not to mention the fact that they all certainly look far more appealing...

From century to century throughout history the men have ruled the roost in politics and business and relegated the home as the place where the women were to direct their attention and efforts. The women have done their job admirably, but the men have failed miserably in most cases. Their politics are corrupt and their businesses have turned into large greedy corporations. The patriarchal model is evidently not working so well - so maybe it's time to hand the reins over to the women. The wars and conflicts around the world are the result of male dominance in politics, and more often than not, are set in motion to benefit male controlled corporate interests. Turn on the evening news anywhere in the world and you'll see images of angry men in conflict and women and children in flight. It is time for change...

Women Of Substance - Interesting and Unique Women

unique women of the world

Worldwide women are asserting themselves and taking charge of everything from the corporate boardroom to more artistic and unique positions in the world of art, design, cuisine and adventure travel. On the African continent women are raising themselves into postions of power in politics, the arts and business. Women are no longer to be kept within stereotypical confines and are no longer asking for empowerment, but are simply taking charge over their lives and the situations and events that affect them. Above are just three of these self empowered females.

When it comes to being on the front lines amidst the unrest that has been reshaping countries around the world, it is now women who are placing themselves at risk to bring news to the rest of us about not only the conflicts that mainstream media reports, but often to expose corruption and abuses that might well never surface if it wasn't for these women on the ground in these locations bringing these misdeeds to the attention of a worldwide audience. The women above are three - one from Tunis, one from London, and one from Cairo that played integral roles in bringing the world's attention to injustice.
