“The most effective way to do it, is to do it.” These simple yet empowering words were once spoken by Amelia Earhart decades ago. However, these words still ring true today.
Women’s History Month is not only about self-empowerment, it’s equally about empowering other women, too.
To help spread the message, FTD curated five inspiring quotes by influential women of the past and present for the women of the future. These quotes will certainly bring some positivity into your day and will remind you of the strength and determination that us women are capable of.
Ah, once again I am returning to the subject of Feminism – a social issue that many misinterpret and mistake for matriarchy. Before I continue, let’s all be reminded of the definition of Feminism:
Feminism: ‘a person who believes in the social, political and economic equality of the sexes.’
Today’s #WiseWordsWednesday is about how as a female, you should embrace who you are and uplift yourself without criticising other women.
You can be a girl who loves eating fast food but don’t criticise the girls who prefer to eat salad. You can be a female who loves making an effort with her appearance with makeup, but don’t put down the females who step out with their hair in a bun and wear none. You can be a woman who only has sex with partners you’re in a romantic relationships with, but don’t slut shame the women who enjoy casual sex.
We are all different, even if we value similar things. As women, we should unite and empower each other daily. Give each other compliments, defend each other and speak kindly of one another even behind each other’s backs.
It is draining to see jealousy, slut-shaming and spite. Let’s not. Let’s unite. Let’s be happy. We are strong, capable and beautiful. Each and every one of use. Let’s embrace each other, let’s support each other and let’s empower each other.
Other women are not your competition.
Happy International Women’s Day to every female on Earth.
