The women who know their worth, who plant their feet and roar in their brilliance....


Lets celebrate with with shared stories , links  poetry etc...

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally. ॐ heart emoticon

The woman who does not require validation is the most feared individual on the planet. ~ Mohadesa Najumi

So what does these mean for girls and women?

This is not to say that our aim is to inspire fear.
It's simply that determined, grounded women are the most powerful change-makers on the planet. This shakes people up!

This is not to encourage an "us versus them" approach.
We need allies. We are all in this together.

This is not to say that validation is not yummy, enjoyable and good when offered in a positive way. Let's validate each other, but let's free ourselves as much of restrictive, shame-based "validation" which of course isn't really validation at all.

This is not to say that validation is not essential for our daughters. Girls learn to validate themselves from hearing us value and affirm them. But the goal is for them to internalize that voice so they do not depend on outside validation.

This IS to say: As we learn to self-validate and depend on our body's wisdom for guidance and reassurance, we become free, joyful and powerful.

Let's rock that, in sisterhood.

There were, no doubt, many notable women in ancient Greece, but history books are usually silent on female accomplishments. According to the historian and novelist Helena P. Schrader, this is because, "Herodotus and other ancient Greek historians are far more likely to mention Persian queens than the wives of Greeks – not because Persian women were more powerful than their Greek counterparts, but because Persians had several wives, and so it was sometimes useful to record by which of them a certain Persian figure had been born.  Since Greeks had only one legitimate wife, there was no need for such clarification when it came to prominent Greek citizens". Every so often, however, certain women performed deeds that the male writers of history simply could not ignore. Women such as Queen Gorgo of Sparta (c. 490 BCE) and Aspasia of Athens (470-400 BCE) have always been well known for their own achievements and for their association with famous men like Leonidas and Pericles, but there were many more who led interesting lives and performed heroic acts and who remain lesser known in the modern day
