YOU are an inspiration…your story can encourage and inspire other women & girls.

The expectations and demands on women & girls around the world are high and, often times, seem unachievable. But women & girls frequently experience breakthrough moments of self-acceptance, self-confidence and self-love, moments when they overcome the expectations of others and decide to live their lives as they choose.

When women & girls share their stories of personal triumph, they often find that telling their story is itself an act of self-empowerment. And then others are inspired and changed by reading real stories of overcoming struggles with fear, with lapses of confidence, or with cultural norms. Sharing stories of personal triumph has the potential to give hope, to inspire, and to help change lives.

Our goal is to create a safe space for women and girls to share their experiences, and to read about the experiences of others. The site does not enable any feedback on stories – no comments, no ratings, no “likes.” Nothing is sold or marketed here, and there are no product sponsorships or partnerships. We stand on our own, with women and girls – and that is an amazing place to stand!

Beyond encouraging and supporting storytelling as a tool for personal empowerment, we strive to increase awareness of organizations that work to advance the safety, health, education and empowerment of women & girls globally. Some of these organizations are listed on the Engage page of this site.
