Why Girl Power is Important

grl pwr

With trending topics such as girl squads and #GirlBoss I have come to a realization: it is a powerful thing for girls to support other girls.

Growing up, it always seemed that jealously was a trait that a number of girls couldn’t escape. As girls, we’ve practically all looked at another girl and yearned to be like her in some way. We’ve wanted her flawless skin or perfect body. We’ve been envious of aspects of her life that could have been her insecurity. And even if we hate to admit it, at some point many of us have used jealousy as a reason to automatically dislike someone.

But what if instead, we took that energy and turned it into something positive? What if we turned jealous thoughts into compliments and worked to empower each other?

Not long ago I read this quote and fell in love with it immediately:

“You can always tell who the strong women are. They are the ones building each other up, instead of tearing each other down.”

By learning to empower and inspire one another, we can grow so much.
