Now that you have a little overview of what our Women Crush Wednesday is, here’s a little about why we chose to dedicate an entire day to these women.
The word ‘feminism’ has gotten such a bad rap and we want to do our part to change that. When we thought about what feminism means to us, the answer was simple: it means we believe that men and women should be treated as equals. We want to make sure it is clear that we do NOT associate feminism with man-hating! We love men!! We wouldn’t be where we are or who we are today if we didn’t have the support from our fathers and boyfriends. Feminism should make you feel positivity and this is our way of reclaiming that emotion. Therefore, we dedicated this day to celebrating female empowerment and spotlighting the many amazing and influential women in our lives.
We also started this because there is a “mean girl” mentality that still exists well beyond high school. Some women are so quick to put another woman down… whether commenting on her looks, or worse yet, tearing another woman down just to (presumably) lift themselves up. So instead of getting angry, we started a discussion and recognized that if women simply started working together, collectively we can all become a million times stronger. And that’s what our #WCW series is all about! We have already started with a small network of girl bosses and we hope to continue to grow our army of positivity. So join in and if you know of a badass woman go ahead and contact us so she can be featured on the next Women Crush Wednesday! YASSS QUEEN!!
