Growing up in rural Wisconsin, Jensine Larsen scoured news publications for the voices of women teachers. When she couldn’t find them, at 19 she took off for the Amazon, where she gathered stories and shared them back home through outlets such as NPR and Air America. Larsen brims with excitement about the global rise of women’s leadership and its relationship to the communications revolution that she catalyzes and supports through World Pulse, an online media platform she designed to turn up the volume on women’s stories across the globe.
