Chi Yvonne Leina gathered the courage to write an article about the devastating, little-known practice of breast ironing that affects 3-4 million girls in her country of Cameroon. She published her story on World Pulse, and it was noticed by CNN editors, who produced a story that went on to become the week’s most read on As a result of her increased visibility and confidence, Leina won an award and launched an awareness campaign to eradicate the practice.

Leina’s campaign has been so successful that Cameroon’s Ministry of Women’s Empowerment and the Family discovered Leina on World Pulse and is now partnering with her to expand the campaign and wipe out the tradition forever.

And Leina is in good company. Over the last three years, the women in the World Pulse community have catapulted into action, improving the lives of over 2.2 million people with their new-found confidence and leadership.

When you support World Pulse, you are opening a digital door for women like Leina who are collectively changing the lives of millions.
