Our Story…The Power of Women Coming Together
Women are taking control of their narrative and what they want out of life. So what changed? It’s not that women are demanding progress; we’ve been doing that for a very long time. What changed is that the world is finally listening.
We’ve changed, too. Who are we? Three powerful, compassionate and entrepreneurial women in the fashion, fitness and wellness industries. How have we changed? We’ve grown more committed to playing a role in advancing our voices, as well as listening to your unique and diverse viewpoints which are full of inspiration, brilliance, and also concern and frustration in today’s unpredicable and changing world. We’ve heard your wellness concerns (so we created The Skinny Line) we’ve heard your fitness concerns (we devised your fitness plan) and we heard your fashion concerns (we outlined your closet makeover). We are working harder than ever to reach more voices by hosting our own show on WABC 77 Talk Radio and partnering with Fran Drescher’s non-profit Cancer Schmancer. We are also regularly showcasing special rights attorney and activist Areva Martin in order to expand women’s power and influence across the country. Still, the most important thing you need to succeed? The support of other women – and finding your own voice! After all, we’re listening!
This is a story of the nature of progress. Sometimes change comes from the top down. Other times, it comes from the bottom up, such as when women like yourselves come together and insist on being heard.
WE EXERCISE OUR POWER…
BY LISTENING TO THE POWER OF YOUR VOICE
As women, we have always been masters of this grassroots change. We’ve had to be. We are easily outnumbered in boardrooms so we exercise power through the communities we create. Women don’t just have a voice, but are at the center of a movement – their movement – a movement that exerts strength, positivity, and growth for ourselves and each other.
Women want the world to get better. For three powerful, compassionate and entrepreneurial women in the fashion, fitness and wellness industries, we want to use our empowerment to give each other a voice in order to make those dreams come true. That’s the power of US and YOU!
