Why 'girl power' is so important

December 10, 2016


Girl power. We seem to talk about this idea a lot. I actually bought a top which says ‘power to the girls’ and it got me thinking a lot about girl power in general.

The phrase “girl power” is used as a term of empowerment, independence, and self-sureness. Girl power expressed a cultural phenomenon of the 1990s and early 2000s. It is also linked to third-wave feminism. The term was made popular by the Spice Girls in the mid-to-late 1990s.

When I think about ‘girl power,’ the idea of empowerment and confidence seems to spring to mind. Girl power is all about unity of women in order to bring about a shared sense of empowerment. It is not a term created to imply that women want to be ‘more powerful’ than men, or vice versa.

I am happy promoting girl power because it is fundamentally important. We live in a world full of such judgement, weather that’s based on our appearance, personality, sexuality, beliefs or anything in between. Girl Power is about bringing one another up, rather than tearing each other down.

 

It deeply upsets me when I see girls speak low of another female. It’s almost as if girls compete against each other in order to bring their own self esteem up. And it’s not healthy. Girl Power is about improving the confidence of women- instead of commenting negatively on another woman’s appearance, why not compliment her for something she deserves to be complimented on instead?

Here’s to Girl Power. Here’s to empowerment. Here’s to confidence, and here’s to equality for all.

Love and happiness always,

  1. Lovely post Becca! I’m in absolute agreement – it’s not that we want to be on top, we want to be on par and equal. Also tearing other girls down in the process is the worst too, I’m like really? Come on it’s not school ladies!! Honestly, glad I’m not the only one who likes a bit of girl power. x

  2. I wish that if we speak about this enough that things will change but sadly there are too many bitter people out their that would rather insult others. I’ve witnessed far to much people are so quick to jump and say something negative to bring someone down if they’re not happy but hesitate to say something positive of they don’t at all. I compliment people all the time both people I know and strangers, not because I like to brown nose I just generally enjoy being nice and putting a smile on someones face, it’s really not all that hard. Love your jumper by the way, looks so cozy πŸ™‚
