Why the focus on women?

Our communities are made up of the life choices and chances afford to both men and women. Why the focus on women? Many of the circumstances that we’ve come to accept as justifying an exclusive focus on men and boys are in fact directly related to the social-economic challenges facing their mothers and those, in turn, are directly related to some of the challenges facing girls. We have an opportunity to break the cycle of poverty and assist women in developing self-reflection techniques and leadership skills to improve and or increase their quality of life. That said, it’s only appropriate that we find the time to encourage our female audience to learn from each other, inspire each other, and teach one another.

In the age of social media, it’s inevitable (especially for younger generations) that women compare their own lives to the lives of the people they follow on Instagram, Twitter, and even LinkedIn in regards to professional growth. This behavior only drives unhealthy competition between the female community—I would rather encourage women to view social media as a place to positively impact others, and show life as it is; unfiltered and raw.

How nice would it be to wake up and see something that was real, funny, and made you feel alive; rather than something that causes you to compare your appearance and wealth? This starts with each of us—showing the authentic lives we lead—not the, ‘let me know you how much better my life is than yours,’ life that we’re rarely ever living.
Women have always been change-makers and it should be no different here.

To make this a reality, we’re going to need your help. Every time you contribute a story, experience, or idea, you’re building a knowledge base every member of this community can tap to make better decisions.
