"Everything you are against weakens you. Everything you are for empowers you."

Because most of the news and statistics we hear about girls and women around the world is either negative, fearful or tragic.

Because a young women today is more likely to be portrayed as a victim, rather than a leader.

Because the incredible stories of powerful women in history are often ignored, never passed on or forgotten.

For all these reasons and more, this blog is a unique forum to celebrate, educate and inspire the strong women and girls in our lives and around the world.
