The Sisterhood Series: Supporting Real Girls All Over The World



Why hello there!

I'm going to cut to the chase here. March is Women's History Month and this Thursday is International Women's Day. Our predecessors did so much in the name of women's rights - we can vote, we can drive, we can wear pants and carry a briefcase better than any man. But like they say, with great power comes great responsibility. We have gained a voice along with freedom but there is much to be done, much to still stand up and fight for. And we can do it. If only we look around and hold hands with other women and work towards the same goal - even if that goal is to support other women and help them up instead of bringing them down. I see and hear so many things about women being our own worst enemies; we are so catty and just not supportive of each other. I wanted to change it, at least in some small way. So here's to celebrating women in all our shapes and forms, supporting one another through our good days and bad and helping each other realize their dreams from the tiniest speck to the larger-than-life. 

I like to celebrate big, so I am launching 'The Sisterhood Series', a series of posts through March, where I will interview real ladies whom I personally know. These ladies are strong, independent, stylish and sassy. They also have goals and dreams and are doing something about it. They are real life inspiration, your everyday girls without all the fluff and photo retouching. Girls like you and me, who have an opinion and are not afraid to let it be heard. They come from so many different backgrounds and different parts of the world. I hope that their stories will help us learn and support girls all over the world, whether or not they fit into your ideal stereotype of your best girlfriend. Get pumped, because it will be an exciting journey full of real-life stories and real-life inspiration.

Disclaimer {9/11/13}: I know Kylie Minogue prancing around in a bunch of pink isn't exactly your average "real girl", I just put them here because they are colorful, fun and playful - which I think is positive. Also these are some qualities that a lot of us girls have and/or aspire to have just because being positive and playful and yes, colorful makes us feel good and heals our souls and you got it, adds a little spice to our lives. Besides, I'm a grown woman, I can do whatever I want (quoting Queen Bey, of course).
