The Power of Female Empowerment: Building a Supportive Tribe of Successful Women

Women have come a long way, in this day and age, when it comes to empowerment. Gone are the days when women were oppressed, belittled, denied simple pleasures, looked down on, and treated as garbage.

Nowadays, women have a voice of reason, a right for to express themselves, knowledge of the truth, and love in their hearts enough to appreciate themselves and their talents.

In this patriarchal society, women before were the followers. Our place was in the home, taking care of our families, and devoting our time and lives in doing so. Our hopes, dreams, and aspirations were taken aside to make sure that our main task, which is taking care of our families, will be the priority.

We have endured cat-calling, emotional, physical, and psychological abuse, mental health issues, and oppression which tested our faith and molded us to become stronger and more resilient.

Nowadays, there are more women in the list of powerful people in the world, who are making noise in the arts, music, theater, and corporate scene, and inspiring women in the younger generations to hold their heads up and show the world our value.

We now demand equal pay, equal opportunities in the workplace, appreciation and acknowledgment of our talents and accomplishments, good quality education, and better compensation for the skills that we worked so hard on improving to get a chance for a better life independently, and not having to rely on men.

Along with the advancement of technology, we were able to spread good vibes and inspiration to more women around the world with the use of social media and the internet. With access to modern technology, it became easier to reach out and help other women who are suffering, in pain, insecure, confused, scared, and alone help them get out of the dark and embrace the possibility of improving their lives and getting their lives back on track with the help of others.

I am one of those women who needed help before. I also felt bad about myself, thinking that I wasn’t good enough. I was insecure and scared. Fortunately, I was able to talk to someone who happens to be a woman who is holding a top position in one of the best airlines in the world. I remember her telling me that I am special because I was made to take the hard path so I can appreciate the value of success in the future. She, like me, also felt the same negativity I mentioned earlier, and somebody helped her as well to overcome it. So she made it a point to mentor others who have suffered just like her, with the hope of inspiring them to love and appreciate themselves better.

We, as humans, are responsible for our own success. However, it is comforting to know that in our life’s journey, we should not take the path alone. There are people who are willing to help us, who appreciate us and who believe in us, and that is enough to keep going.
