Today, sisterhood is stronger than ever—as we make our way in this world, we women are searching for a sense of community and actively seeking ways to assert ourselves.
The Women’s March, #MeToo and #TimesUp movements are proof that women are staking their claim. There’s plenty of want for sisterhood to go around, and each of us can contribute to the success of this powerful momentum. Here’s how:
Strong women are needed as leaders in every field—whatever our strengths and gifts, we should always choose to rise to our greatest potential; this allows us to empower other women and be a role model for young girls. Our aim should always be to inspire everyone to have big dreams.
What better way to inspire others than to create a community that brings us all together? Communities help us become better versions of ourselves. Volunteer to supervise the local Girl Scout troop, start a running club for middle school girls, or organize a weekend nature trip where mothers and daughters can go on a getaway together. By working together, we create connections and build relationships. Nurturing strong bonds can help us all—particularly women of younger generations—become resilient and contribute to success.
Whether it's time, talent, or financial support, the donation of ourselves to others who look to us for inspiration can do wonders in a life searching for female support. Connecting with youth organizations, becoming a mentor, or simply spending one-on-one time with others has the power to impact and change the lives of girls and women in our community.
Being a strong woman matters—how we implement our strengths in the lives of others is what makes all the difference. Truly empowered women have what it takes to transform those around them. By unleashing our capacity for good, we can transform our own lives and the lives of women in our community.
Now that's powerful.
