#WomensLives - An Intro to the Movement to Empower Women

#WomensLives-An Intro to the Movement to Empower Women via Helmig Haus
I am happy to announce that our blog has been selected to participate in the joint initiative between She Knows Media and Public Radio International through a Blogher campaign to discuss women's struggles throughout the world and how people are fighting for reform and swift action to empower more women and teach our girls that they do matter!

As a mother of two girls, I was eager to be a part of this campaign. I struggle everyday to make sure that my girls realize that they have a voice, that they can stand up for themselves and that they can always dream bigger. Unfortunately, there are many women, especially young girls all over the world that do not have someone telling them that. Women have been fighting for their voices to be heard, to not suffer in the shadows and now, through this initiative we have a chance to shed light on their plights, to fight the injustice that plagues our girls and to lend a helping hand to those women who want equality.

Those participating in the initiative will be sharing stories through social media and their blogs with the tag #WomensLives. We ask that when you see it you also share our posts (or tweets) so that we can continue spreading the word to help make a change for women across the globe! 

"Be the change you wish to see in the world! Mahatma Gandhi
As some of you know I have been resisting adding my blog to Facebook because of issues that I have had in the past but, due to this amazing opportunity, I finally let it go and have now created a dedicated Facebook page for our blog! To see what we are sharing today just visit our page. It is our hope that you will join us and lend your voice to this great cause!

  2. Hi Lisa! Thank you for commenting, as parents we need to worry about both sons and daughters but its our daughters that need to be brought out of the shadows and shown that they too can achieve what they set their sites on. I also look forward to your comments!
