I came across this tag on The Value of a Moment’s blog. If you know me then you know I’m very passionate about women, our rights and empowerment. I’m a feminist. So this is a cool and fun tag for me to do, and I love tags!
What does women empowerment mean to you?
Woman empowerment means women doing whatever they want. It means equality for all, and women loving and supporting each other. Different women feel empowered in different ways, it’s all about living your life whichever way you want to.
It means women coming together and lifting and encouraging other women. Also, men encouraging and supporting women, and vice versa. Empowerment is about choice.
What woman/women do you most admire? Why?
I admire so many women for different reasons. If we’re talking about famous women and women in the public eye, I would have to say that Beyonce is definitely a woman I look up to. She has always been outspoken about feminism and specifically black women. Beyonce has made history on numerous occasions.
I’d also have to say Serena Williams. Serena has been in the news recently due to scandals and blatant sexism and racism against her. I’m so inspired by her strength and mentality. I’m so fascinated every time I watch her play, she truly is the greatest athlete of all time. I adore her.
Share with us a story, drawing, or video that you think says “empowered women.”
There are so many! But there is a video of Reese Witherspoon at the 2015 Glamour ‘Women of the Year’ awards. Reese received the award for her work in creating stronger roles for women in film. This speech inspired me so much because I believe I have been negatively influenced by the media, and the media portrayal of women, so to see someone actively trying to change this makes me feel so happy.
Share with us the best lesson you’ve learned in leadership.
Leadership is all about mutual respect. You have to earn your respect so it’s all about being fair, but assertive. Always lead by example. Teamwork, and looking out for each other will bring your team closer together.
You have got to be a good listener in order to be a good leader. Without listening skills, you won’t be able to lift and help your team. If you don’t listen you can’t gain respect, and without respect, you can’t lead people. Listen and guide, not control. Equality for every member of your team.
What cause do you most want to bring awareness to? Why?/What does it mean to you?
So many causes to think of! I’ve always wanted to do something to help girls in other countries that can’t go to school and learn. I want to be able to give every single girl an opportunity to be heard.
I’d also love to empower women with their own body image issues due to the media. I love seeing changes in media now, and I’d just love to be a part of that somehow. I want for my little sister to grow up in a world without so many pressures put on young girls to act and look a certain way. I want Eliza to grow up and be someone she wants to be whatever that may be.
I’m going to tag
