Happy WHM! Welcome to Femme Month on ForUsGirls!
Honouring Women’s history is the moment to talk about ourselves, our achievements, struggles, and yes, history, on the journey to gender equality.
We’re about accepting, celebrating and developing empowered women and girls. Our responsibility embodies inclusivity, and we’re taking action in representing all these voices.
It means to embrace, listen and give space and speak up to and for all gender identities who identify with womanhood. It means deconstructing standards of femininity, gender assumptions, gender identity, preferences, and abilities dictated by society. We are fighting for visibility for no one to take away the joy of being your full self.
All stories, experiences from inclusive backgrounds are valid. Without your stories and conversations, the women’s movement cannot fully exist.
