GIRL POWAH – The Every Woman Story Project

Ever had a struggle so big it consumed your life? You fight it, sometimes succeeding, other times succumbing? How about when you learn of others that are fighting the same fight…it helps, doesn’t it? Knowing you’re not alone takes power away from the hold the struggle has over you. It gives you a feeling of camaraderie. Solidarity.

My struggle with body image and self worth is something I’ve written about before. I found the strength to let myself be vulnerable and write about it by reading other women’s stories. Those stories helped me tremendously, so I knew writing my own could help someone else, as well as be a cathartic exercise for me. Writing my story was a gift to myself, and my badass friend, Katie Cross, wants you to have that gift too. Let me introduce you to The Every Woman Story Project, which you can learn more about by clicking the highlighted title in this sentence, which is a link.

Or, simply read on….

The Every Woman Story project is a place to bring womenβ€”and all the things we struggle withβ€”together. It’s a place of empowerment. Of vulnerability. Of strength. Of solid steel willpower. The purpose of the project is to collect stories from the women in the trenches and empower each other by sharing them.

The stories will be there forever as a resource for women, but you also have the opportunity to contribute by writing your own story. Your story will be completely anonymous, even to the project’s creator, Katie.

There is no rule. No limit to what you say or what story you tell. It can be two sentences, or two pages. Two paragraphs, or two words. When all entries have been gathered up, Katie will compile them into an ebook and offer them for free on her website, Health and Happiness Society.

There will be no charge for the book. No fee. No monetary gain. No content editing. The stories will be presented as they are given.
