SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL GIRL GANG


What do you think of when you hear girl power? The Spice Girls, a trend, feminists?
The new wave of feminism has shifted to a focus on girl power. Whatever your opinions are of feminism and whether it is a positive or counter-productive movement, there is something really empowering behind the idea of girls supporting girls.


What does girl power mean to me?

I see girl power as an incredible movement to empower women everywhere to achieve their own success. This movement is about supporting other women in business, music, everyday life and being supportive towards those striving towards their goals. I will never forget what a teacher I had once said to me "This world is not easy for women. We need to support each other because God knows men aren't going to do it". This will stay with me my entire life. If we as women call each other names and put each other down based on their personal life choices or the amount of success they are having, aren't we just saying that it's okay for men to do this to?
That's why I love the idea of girl power- supporting girls and empowering them to be the best they can be. Which really should just be a given for everyone in this world.



Empowering Women. 

 It has become an alarming trend for women to be negative towards themselves. I am overwhelmed with the amount of times in a day I hear a women say they aren't pretty or thin enough or that they can't do something "because I'm a girl". I feel it is our duty to empower these young girls and women to feel and be the best person they can be. This is what the whole girl power movement is about- spreading the message that yes you are a women and that is something to be insanely proud about because you are strong and capable of great things!

So support that girl in your class who feels she isn't smart enough. Encourage your friend she should try out for her favourite sports team. Tell that girl on Twitter that her highlight is flawless. Buy from that girl who has created her own business. Support girls and join the movement because together we are hella strong and can do anything.

Girl power forever!

  10. Empowerment is so important and it can be hard to be a woman in this day and age.

    I'm happy to hear that there are feminist bloggers out there!

  11. This was such a lovely post Robyn, I love how you are so positive about this. And to be frank it is beautiful when girls empower one another. it's such a negative thing when there are some girls that bring one another down. It's not right. And that quote your teacher said is impactful. Honestly can feel the strength and some honesty in it.

  18. When I hear girl power I usually think of myself 🙈 not that I am bragging, but I have been loving lifting people. But you can't help someone who doesn't want your help, It's sad but true.

  19. This is so sweet and I love it! I hate that girls feel the need to tear each other down and are so competitive with each other. Why can't we all succeed? It's bad enough having to compete with boys to be thought of as equal and to be appreciated, we shouldn't do it to girls going through the same struggle!

    I got your back, bro.

  21. This is such a good post. Honestly, it's satisfying to see someone talk about Girl Power and not necessarily talk about it from a feminist standpoint. Just talking about Girl Power and what it means. It's just lovely and this was such a good read.

    Also, I absolutely support my local Girl Gang. ^^
