Our Manifest

It all begins with self-love, seeing in others what is also in me, we women are the only ones who can save ourselves, no one will do it for us. After so many centuries of waiting for a man to do it, we have fully demonstrated that this is not the case. Our manifesto is an expression to show society that sisterhood is more alive than ever!

We all have dreams, goals and objectives. Wouldn't it be easier to unite and enhance our abilities to achieve it? I think there is enough in the world for everyone. And that leads me to question a few things:

Do we really have to overthrow the other to fulfill our goal? If so, who set us that goal? Was it us? Would we be willing to compete with our own mother? So that? we would lose much of ourselves if we did. It is better to recognize the other, accept her, love her and see her as a sister, mother, aunt, friend, cousin. grandmother.

We all suffer from time to time... What if from time to time we join together so that it hurts less? your pain is my pain. The hug of my friend, my sister, my mother and my grandmother restart life, gives hope where she found it lost.

The sisterrhood between strangers approaches us as a type of friends, who without thinking twice would shake your hand in the front row.

Let's start without criticizing the one who envies us. She still does not know the wonder of a woman that she hides behind that misdeed. It is better to let go of envy and let it go extinct, because what I see in the other is what motivates me to be the best version of myself.

We are not all the same and that is what inspires me to recognize the other as if it were me in another life. The diversity of women makes life less simplistic, it helps us distinguish more imposed realities. More reasons to get together and work for total female freedom.

Empowerment here is not a cliché, it is a decision that is made every day.

I am black, I am white, I am brunette, indigenous, mestizo, mulatto, lesbian, trans; I am a woman and I can fly. I am fat, skinny, tall, short, girl, young, old, disabled; I am a woman and I can dream. I can believe that I am going to be the best version of myself.

We support each other, guide each other and see each other grow, we are accomplices and participants in our awakening.

Each woman has a struggle, which we do not always know about and it is necessary to ask ourselves

Is it necessary to judge and blame her for what she torments him?
Responsible yes we are and recognizing ourselves costs us, but for this the union is the answer.
