Women Empowering Women: We are so Much Stronger Together
"BEHIND EVERY SUCCESSFUL WOMAN, IS A TRIBE OF OTHER SUCCESSFUL WOMEN, WHO HAVE HER BACK."
I originally posted the below on my Instagram but felt is was long enough it could also be posted here as its own blog post:
I am a firm believer in women empowering women. Too many girls/women these days are SALTY AF about other women. Don't allow envy/jealousy/insecurities cause you to hate-on and see other women as competition. I guarantee every single one of us has at least one thing in common & can connect with each other in some way. So instead of tearing other women down, try supporting, encouraging and loving them instead. We are all so much stronger when we work together.
I recently read an article written by Chelsea Handler, and thought it was quite-well written & felt the need to share.
If you happen to care about women empowerment, please read on:
“Misogynist: A man who hates women as much as women hate one another.”
'Ladies, We can eliminate the competitiveness that has been imposed upon us because we are treated as a minority and have been taught to tackle, rather than climb.
Forget the jealousy. Forget the competitiveness. We are stronger together. Find a woman you have nothing in common with and give her a hug. Then hug yourself. Then roll up your sleeves and stop looking in the mirror.
Look around. Get away from yourself. Find women to support. Throw your weight behind them. Get involved.
We are better than this. We have got to get behind each other. We have to stop ourselves from the snide comments that come easily and out of jealousy that are simply a projection of our own insecurities.
Let’s stop it with the dialogue about how women look or what they wear, or if they’ve gained or lost weight. We are more guilty of this with each other than most men are.
It’s time to get focused on what really matters. Find women that are different than you and figure out the things you have in common. We have a whole generation of girls who are looking at us to see how we treat each other. Let’s show them what the power of being a woman really looks like. Let’s open our arms to each other, and to them.'
