湾区知名女作家水菱 -http://www.svwomen.org/bbs/viewtopic.php?id=1&t_id=283
湾区女作家水菱现居San Jose。创作包括小说,杂文,诗词,剧本等。她的作品以描写人性与感情细腻入微见长,主题涵盖华人在美生活感触;精神环境的挣扎。曾以小说<便当>获海华文学奖。且以下列著作:《宅门外的春天》,《外遇午餐》,《春天会再来 》获华侨文艺佳作著述奖。近作有《午妻》,《交换舞伴》。所有小说出版前皆曾在报上连载过,近期并改编剧本《春天会再来》。水菱曾任报章专栏“午后清泉”执笔人,主持过“水菱信箱”。水菱除了擅写作并擅长歌唱,作词与作曲。所作《寄情》词曲,曾获 北加州湾区音乐大赛《最佳词曲奖》第一名。

2003年4月30日 星岛中文电台"谈笑风生"节目

主持人祝笙于2003年4月30日下午1:45以现场直播的方式,在节目中采访了"硅谷女性"的创办人之一余雪女士.Singtao Chinese Radio Station ( FM 96.1) will interview “Silicon Valley Women” on 4/30/03 Singtao Chinese Radio Station (FM96.1) will interview “Silicon Valley Women” on Wednesday, 4/30/03 at 1:45pm about Mother’s Day event. Please listen in to the program on time if interested.



  • 祝笙:各位听众,大家好.欢迎您收听 “谈笑风生” 节目. 我是祝笙. 今天为大家邀请到的是”硅谷女性”协会的创办人余雪小姐来到我们节目当中, 介绍 “硅谷女性”最近主办的一个”母亲节”征文活动. 余雪你好.
  • 余雪:祝笙你好,各位听众朋友好.
  • 祝笙:我第一次听到你们这个团体叫”硅谷女性”.
  • 余雪:是的, 有许多人还没听说过我们这个组织.
  • 祝笙:听起来你们这个组织是不是特别强调”女权”的一个团体? (笑)
  • 余雪:(笑)没有吧?我可不可以先简单介绍一下我们”硅谷女性”成立的初衷和经过.
  • 祝笙:当然可以.
  • 余雪:那是在两年多前吧,当时硅谷地区经济形势很好,有很多华人在硅谷地区工作.当时硅谷地区的各类华人团体如雨后春笋般出现, 但是没有一个以女性为主, 特别是以职业女性为主要成员的活跃团体. 因此当时我和我的两位朋友就萌发了一个为硅谷地区的职业华人女性朋友提供一个属于自己的天地的想法.这是我们当时成立这个组织的初衷.
  • 祝笙:目前你们这个组织有多少成员了?
  • 余雪:今天我来电台前特意上网查了一下我们的记录.我们现在有近四百个会员.
  • 祝笙:哇.是吗? 真不错.那么这些成员大都是所谓的 “女强人” 吗? (笑)
  • 余雪:(笑)不是的,不要有误会.首先我们不是一个"女权"组织.其实我们的目的只是希望能给职业女性提供一个在工作之余属于自己的空间,分享各自的人生经验和生活感受.还有就是举办和参加一些跟女性有关的活动.就这么简单,并没有带有代表"女权运动"的意味.(笑)
  • 祝笙:那么是一些什么样的职业女性呢?
  • 余雪:嗯,各行各业的职业女性吧.但是因为硅谷地区本身高科技行业比较多的特点,所以有许多的成员都在高科技行业工作,比如工程师很多.但也不全是.比如说我自己,在公司里一直干的是采购主管的工作.所以,我们的成员并不都是工程师.各行各业的职业女性都有.
  • 祝笙:不过听到你们这个名字叫"硅谷女性",就会自然而然地想到,你们这个组织的成员是不是都是从大陆来的,或者说只接受从大陆来的朋友们呢?
  • 余雪:噢,不是的.是这样,我知道从台湾或者香港来的朋友都习惯称呼"矽谷",大陆的朋友则习惯称为"硅谷".正好我们几个创办人都是来自中国大陆,所以我们就习惯性地用了"硅谷"这两个字.但我们并没有刻意说要只面对大陆来的朋友.
  • 祝笙:所以你们也是非常欢迎凡是在湾区的华人职业女性朋友都加入你们这个"硅谷女性"组织的.
  • 余雪:对对对,我们非常欢迎来自各个地区的女性朋友都来加入我们这个组织.
  • 祝笙:那么你们平时主要举办一些什么活动呢?听到这是个女性团体,就不免想到象"红娘"之类的组织(笑).
  • 余雪:(笑)首先我必须要澄清一下,这是一个非常大的误会.我已经不止一次听到这个疑问.许多人听到我们的名字还以为我们是个象Single Club一样的社交团体,这是完全错误的.还是让我来介绍一下我们举办的是些什么活动吧.
  • 祝笙:好.
  • 余雪:一般来说我们的活动都是跟女性有关的.首先我们成立了一些兴趣小组,比如说读书俱乐部和烹调兴趣小组.读书俱乐部每个月都会有一个"读书会"活动.在每个月的最后一个星期日.主要是讨论一些大家喜欢的作家的作品.在每个读书会结束以前,她们都会决定下个月读书会讨论的主题和作家的作品,这样就一直继续下去.还有一些女性朋友比较喜欢烹调.我们有一个烹调兴趣小组不定期地聚会.比方说大家各自带一样自己比较得意的甜点啊,菜啊,来跟其他也对烹调有兴趣的朋友分享烹调经验.我觉得这都是非常好的互相交流的机会,也是一个业余爱好.另外我们还会定期举办一些户外活动.必如登山,郊游,野餐之类的.上个月我们在Sunnyvalle 的一个公园举办的一次户外野餐活动就吸引了100多位来宾.
  • 祝笙:请问这一百多人全是女生吗?
  • 余雪:不是.这也是要澄清的一点.(笑)
  • 祝笙:那就是说女性的另外一半也可以带来.
  • 余雪:对,非常欢迎他们来.而且他们也可以是我们的成员.我们很欢迎的.
  • 祝笙:噢,是这样.
  • 余雪:对,这就是我要澄清的一点.虽然我们是女性组织,但是我们也欢迎非女性成员,或者说女性成员的家属,朋友,来参加我们的活动.
  • 祝笙:你们举办了这么多活动,一般来说活动大多会涉及到年龄层次的分配.那么你们的活动主要是针对哪个年龄层次的女性呢?
  • 余雪:嗯,从我们的成员的年龄层分布来看,基本上是介于25-45岁之间.但是我要再强调一下,她们的父母,朋友,家属都可以来参加我们的活动.我们都很欢迎.
  • 祝笙:我觉得很有趣.听到余雪刚才介绍说她们硅谷女性有不同的兴趣小组活动,让我想到有另外一个组织,是叫"中华资讯网"吧,他们有一个小组叫"”Woman in Business”我每次都会收到她们的一些活动简报,很长的名字,叫"中华资讯网职业女性特殊兴趣小组",我觉得非常有趣.
  • 余雪:听上去是蛮有意思的.
  • 祝笙:对,在湾区,你们和她们一样,希望能把我们这些在硅谷奋斗的一些职业女性,华人女性,把她们挑出来,为大家举办一些活动,比如说一些有益的讲座活动,能够让更多的女强人,或者说在职场上拼杀的女性集中在一起,分享各自的经验.
  • 余雪:是的,这是我们的目的.除了我刚刚提到的兴趣小组,户外活动以外,我们也举办各种讲座活动.这些讲座主题当然都跟女性有关,不一而足,诸如文化,艺术,健康,美容,家政这些女性朋友都比较感兴趣的话题.另外,我们还跟湾区的其他华人团体合作举办一些比较大型的公益活动和娱乐活动.比如去年的中秋节,我们就和其他许多华人团体一起在Great America游乐场举办了一个很大的游园活动,丰富华人社区的业余生活.再比如下个月北加州的华人体育协会要主办一个华人运动会,我们也会组织运动队代表硅谷女性参加这个活动.我们正在招收运动员,如乒乓球,网球运动员等,代表我们参加这个运动会.所以说我们的活动内容是十分丰富多彩的.
  • 祝笙:非常好.听众朋友如果您现在正在电脑旁,或者等会儿可以上网的话,不妨上"硅谷女性"的网站去看看.她们的网址是: {{a href=”http://www.svwomen.org”}}http://www.svwomen.org{{/a}}
  • 余雪:对,全都是会员自己写的."我们书房"只是"硅谷女性"网站主题的一个部分.给我们喜欢写作的朋友提供一个发表她们的作品的园地.她们只要写了,投稿给我们了,我们就给她们在我们的网站上刊登出来.
  • 祝笙:是,非常好.而且你们这个文章刊登后旁边还有一个讨论区,可以让读者,网友对这篇文章发表意见评论,我觉得真是不错.还可以聊一聊.比如有网友在上面说北京有什么其他地方可以玩的,什么地方又变了.我觉得大家真的可以借着这个网站互相交流.不过,我想你们是非牟利机构吧,这网站的设计,还有你们活动的经费是从哪里来的呢?是从你们职业女性的收入来吗?(笑)
  • 余雪:(笑)我们"硅谷女性"所有的工作人员都是义务工作,没有任何报酬的.
  • 祝笙:有时可能还要贴钱对吧?(笑)
  • 余雪:(笑),是的,曾经是这样.不过现在我们通过举办一些活动,会有很少的一些收入.所以我们现在也在寻找愿意支持"硅谷女性"的赞助团体和个人来支持我们举办更多,更有意义的活动.
  • 祝笙:所以说除了你们希望有一些Sponsor外,主要还是通过自己筹款来举办活动.
  • 余雪:对.
  • 祝笙:我们稍呆会儿再来跟我们的听众朋友介绍一下"硅谷女性"这个团体在今年母亲节前后举办的一个"母亲节征文"活动.是跟美国的华文艺术界协会,还有其他一些社团合办的活动.好,我们呆会儿再继续回到节目当中.余雪,我特别为了今天的这个访问主题挑了一首歌"姐姐妹妹站起来"
  • 余雪:谢谢.我也喜欢这首歌.
  • (广告时间)
  • 祝笙:欢迎您回到"谈笑风生".我是祝笙,是在每个礼拜一到礼拜五的下午为您播出这个节目.在今天的下半段节目中,我们为您请到的是"硅谷女性"协会的余雪小姐来到我们节目当中,为我们介绍这个协会.听众朋友可以上她们的网站看看:http://www.svwomen.org 是非常漂亮的一个绿色的,非常清雅的一个网站.我想请问一下余雪,很好奇地问,你们"硅谷女性"每次举办活动的时候,都是象您这样穿得这么的正式和漂亮吗?(笑)
  • 余雪:(笑)没有啊.
  • 祝笙:我想说自从我来到电台上班后,每天都穿牛仔裤上班.(笑)
  • 余雪:(笑)我们举办活动的时候要看是什么样的活动.比如说户外野餐的时候,就不可能穿得西装革履的,应该是很casual的.
  • 祝笙:是.希望更多的湾区女性朋友们能够了解你们这个协会,来参加你们的活动.接下来要为大家介绍的是,在五月份,也就是母亲节前后,硅谷女性会举办一个"母亲节征文"活动,到五月三十日截止征文收件时间,你们这个征文活动对字数,体裁有什么限制?
  • 余雪:首先让我来简单地说一下,为什么我们要举办这个"母亲节征文"活动"."母亲节"自然是以母亲为主题的,是跟女性非常紧密相关的.另外"硅谷女性"要让大家知道,我们并不仅仅是一个职业女性.我觉得一个成功的职业女性跟一个母亲,或者说一个很好的housewife,并不矛盾.我们要歌颂母亲,赞美母亲,同时肯定女性价值,我们提倡传统的家庭价值观念,我们职业女性并不是只工作,没有其他生活的.这就是为什么我们要举办这么一个征文活动的动机.我们的征文活动得到许多协办单位的支持.我们感到非常荣幸.比如我们得到美国华文艺术界协会的大力支持.他们中的许多著名作家,比如黄运基,还有著名女作家吴玲瑶,喻丽清等都愿意当我们这个征文活动的评委.同时我们也得到北美最大的一个中文网站"文学城"网站的协作.另外还有"文心社",是美国东部的一个中国文学社团组织,他们也愿意让他们的成员来参与我们这个活动,给我们投稿,以及帮助我们的初评工作等.征文要求很简单,只要是跟母亲有关的文章,字数在三千字以内,体裁以散文为主.我们鼓励大家都来投稿. 我个人觉得,写有关母亲的文章并不一定要是作家,也不一定要文笔很好才可以写,因为那是发自内心的感情.只要写了,就一定能够感动人.
  • 祝笙:对. 那么所有的投稿一定是要以前没有发表过的文章,是吗?
  • 余雪:对.一定是要以前没有在传统媒体发表过的作品.
  • 祝笙:那要如何投稿呢?
  • 余雪:投稿的方法,请大家上我们的网站看看,上面有非常详细的征文启事.可以通过E-mail把稿件寄到我们的E-mail信箱:报svwomen@yahoo.com.如果没有E-MAIL的朋友,也可以通过邮寄的方法把征文邮寄给我们.我们的征文启事上有详细的邮寄地址.
  • 祝笙:听众朋友可以上网看一下.她们的网址是: {{a href=”http://www.svwomen.org”}}http://www.svwomen.org{{/a}} 这是这个母亲节征文活动的网站,上面有非常丰富详细的资料.如何投稿,参加办法以及征文的时间等等. 那么你们有没有奖金呢?
  • 余雪:我想说明的是,奖金只是一种形式,但不是我们这个征文活动的重点.我们这次活动重在参与,当然也有奖金,一等奖100美元,二等奖50美元,三等奖25美元,获奖作品都会刊登在传统中文媒体上,如北美的<美华文学>杂志,<侨报>副刊等.另外获奖作者还会获得颁奖证书以及著名作家签名赠书等.我想强调的是,我们鼓励重在参与,并不想以高奖金来吸引作者的投稿.
  • 祝笙:其实我觉得可以借着这个机会抒发一下对自己母亲的感情,并把它写出来,并不是说一定要得奖,写完后即使没获奖也可以把它寄给妈妈看看, 也不错啊.
  • 余雪:对.可以把征文当作母亲节的礼物送给母亲, 我想母亲们收到这样的礼物一定会很高兴的.
  • 祝笙:是,非常希望湾区的朋友多多参与.那么这写文章的作者不一定都要是女性写的对不对?男生也可以投稿的.
  • 余雪:(笑)那当然了,男同胞也可以投稿.
  • 祝笙:那好,希望男生也来投稿.请大家上”硅谷女性”的网站看看: {{a href=”http://www.svwomen.org”}}http://www.svwomen.org{{/a}} 可以非常详细地了解”母亲节”征文活动的详情. 谢谢”硅谷女性”的余雪来到节目当中.我们希望更多的女性朋友来加入”硅谷女性”协会, 一起来分享生活当中的点点滴滴.谢谢余雪, 谢谢.
  • 余雪:谢谢祝笙,谢谢各位听众朋友.
  • 祝笙:最后收听的这首歌是林忆莲的”走在大街的女子”.”谈笑风生”明天见.

中国的疫情牵动了千万人的心,硅谷女性以及参与此活动的团体将密切关注疫情的动态,继续采购所需的医用物资运往祖国。 活动的组织者们最大的愿望就是让湾区更多的团体和个人参加这次活动,有钱出钱,有力出力,力求为中国的抗SARS尽自己的一份力量. 活动将继续进行到六月底。
