Sisterhood is boundless — we should never lose sight of this untamed truth.
– KEYS SOULCARE
“I will raise my children to be beautiful human beings and powerful men who understand how magnificent women are. I believe that all women, all over the world, are beautiful, whole, and powerful. They should be honored like goddesses, not just on International Women’s Day, but every day. We must continue to lift each other up, believe in ourselves, and not hold back from this truth. #InternationalWomensDay” — Alicia Keys
In “Uses of Anger,” Audre Lorde writes, “I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own.” It’s a powerful reminder of the interconnectedness between women, all over the globe, from all walks of life — and the empathy and equity required to truly liberate them.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it? Move towards freedom for all women, uplifting their beauty, voices, and healing on a daily basis — nurturing your mind, heart, and spirit in the process.
Women honoring women is a force like no other; a sisterhood unbound and an unbreakable bond. Keep the momentum going by sharing this practice with your partners, friends, and children. This International Women’s Day, turn towards your global sisters and see them, hear them, praise them, and acknowledge them — and then do it again tomorrow and the day after that. By turning towards another, you don’t just shatter glass ceilings, you build new foundations for generations to come.
