EDUCATING THE GIRL CHILD

Posted April 22, 2021 from South Africa

"A woman rejoices in another woman's misery" they say, "A woman is another woman's biggest enemy" they engraved in our minds. I believe its time to change that, I believe its time to re-write history and we can only do so by educating the girl child.

Lets educate young girls  to support each other, to be there for each  other to choose each other , to celebrate each other. Teaching young girls all over the world to empower one another can change the world. Lets engrave it in young girls to celebrate each others successes, to hype each other up, to dream together and to always have each others backs.

Gone should be the days when a woman found happiness in another woman's misery, gone should be the days when a woman is the reason for another woman's misery, gone should be the days when a woman is jealous of another woman's success instead of celebrating each other, gone should be the days when a woman is an island even when she's surrounded by other women. Gone should the the days when a woman feels scared in the presence of other women.

Lets start our girls young, lets help them be content with their abilities , lets help them find happiness in supporting each other. Teaching the girl child to support other girls can help in building her self esteem , it can help her to not feel threatened by another girls success.

 Together all around the world, Lets raise young women who understand that being different  from each other is what makes us individuals,  young women who understand that beauty has no definition , young women who are content with who they are that they don't feel the need to compare themselves with each other but rather celebrate the differences they have with each other. 

Let's make it mandatory that the girl child understands the importance of empowering other girl children.

Hello Shannon,
Welcome to World Pulse with your power vision of women helping girls and fellow women. It is a much needed cultural shift especially in the current climate of 'slay queens' and 'side chicks' and a myriad of other ways where girls and women feel that their worth can only be realized in relation to what they can offer men, and how much these men appreciate them. It really is sad. But World Pulse has shown us what is possible when women come together to empower women and girls, and I am happy that you have joined in this push for a more equitable world through educating and resourcing girls and women. Aweh :)

Hello Shannon,
Women are the worse enemy of women. Women are women's biggest nightmare and the creators of shattered dreams. Women are not born to support women. Women are taught to support women. They are also taught for thousands of years how to keep us down. Somehow the teachers of the girls have to be reached. The girls will just learn what they are taught.
I wrote a post that is the big sister to your post. I hope you take time to read it...It amplifies the fact the we are on the same page, the same team. Check it out. Welcome to World Pulse! Hugs...JoMarie
I have a vision that can save us all...WOMEN SUPPORTING WOMEN!

Thank you for this post and for sharing your profound ideas!! What a wonderful vision you share ... teaching girls and women to love, respect and support one another not only empowers and celebrates women, but also lifts up their families and our entire world.
