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 🙂

  24. When my mother was in labor for 36 hours she and my grandmother looked out the window at the same time and watched a coyote come out of a bush look at the pair of them then transformed into a bald eagle and flew away. Since then I have spoken to a shaman and he said they witnessed the trickster watching over my birth.

  25. I don’t know if was dreaming it didn’t feel like a dream. I remember going to bed and waking up in cave. I slowly opened my eyes laying next a fire lighting the cave just a little light. Enough to I was in a cave I jump to my feet looking around for something I thought was lost or might of died. It was a weird wanton feeling. But there she was not dead not lost my wolf I hug her stroke her dead told her I missed. I stand up look out the cave opening into a dark forest I feel the night breeze on my face; and asked she if she if was ready (She was her name). she walks to my side and rubbed me I told her ” remember stay by side run with me.we begin to run I feel the forest a euphoric feeling fills my body. And sitting up in my bed eyes wide open……. SAYING TO MYSELF MY WOLF SHE IS ALONE.

  27. In my present and past home I have had coyotes come into my yard in broad daylight. Non-aggressively. I have no small animals. This morning it was a very young pup who was very timid and gentle. I live in city limits and it was trapped on the inside of my chain link. I still have no idea how it got there. Animal control assured me that they would take it unharmed to a out of city limit area. I feel some sort of connection with this animal, which is why I searched the meaning online. Any comments or ideas as to why the coyote literally lands in my lap frequently??

  28. About a year or so ago, I was heading to school and as I headed out the door, I saw a coyote looking at me(originally I thought it was a wolf but later found out it was a coyote) and then I blacked out and fell to the ground. My mother found me and took me to the hospital and they took my blood pressure, blood sugar level and other blood tests to see if anything was wrong, there wasn’t, I still have 0 clues as to why this happened to me. Coyotes usually never come around our house, and suddenly, I see this one look at me and I black out? I’m clueless, anyone have any insight as to why this happened to me?

  30. I had a dream that I went into a room, looked at the back of my body in a mirror and saw that I had a black horse tail. It was long and pretty, but I wanted to cut it. As soon as I was about to leave the room, to grab some scissors, I looked up and saw that there was a strange man watching me from the vent and in my dream i became more concerned with sternly telling off the man who was watching me. I woke up feeling quite confused – thoughts?

  32. Sticking with my theory that the brutal winter left the female unable to produce a viable egg. The adults would be adoring and doting over a fledged juvenile and the last several months have shown no evidence of it. Basing this on my own observances, which spans 4 years now. This time of year the adult vulture will still regurgitate food and care for its fledgling, well into December.
